Antique Beaded Purse with Tortoiseshell Hinged Opening - Repair/Repurpose
Antique Glass Beaded Victorian Purse in Blue, Red, Green, Black, Gold beads with looped tassel strands. The clamshell closure which is hinged is broken and missing pieces however the beading and lining is in tact. The tassels are looped in black beads with green beads on the loop. Some of them are missing or need to be reworked. The purse is 8" long and 6.5" wide at the main bottom part of the purse. The top of the purse tapers in and is rounded at the opening. The inside lining is a purple linen with a ruffled like edging where it connects to the hinge. This is a beauty that needs a little TLC. See Photos.

Please note that most of my photos are taken at 10X magnification. This shows any blemishes much more magnified than they really are.
I keep great notes about each item and can answer most questions quickly, but I do not store fine jewelry on premises, so answers about specific measurements may take some time as I arrange to inspect the piece again.
In addition to this website, Maria's Vintage, I am on eBay as stampshopgirl, on Etsy as stampshopgirl, and on StorEnvy as Maria's. I have many vintage jewelry items and other vintage and new items - a very wide variety.
I will combine shipping, even if you buy items from one of my other stores. If you purchase one item and know you’ll be picking more, just email me and let me know and I will ship them at the same time and refund the shipping over the combined limit.
Given the number of different items I carry it is hard to know what combination of items can be purchased to pre-plan the shipping, so just email me and we will work it out to save you shipping charges whenever possible.
