Elegant Handbags Facts & Tips


Delightful French Beaded Evening Handbag

<<<< Back to
French Beaded and Elegant Handbags


This hand made beaded evening handbag comes from France and was designed for Spritzer & Fuhrmann Ltd. during the 1940's.

This well known and upscale company earned and deserved a reputation for elegance and quality, selling in New York and the Caribbean.

Vintage 1930 1940 French beaded evening purse all soft pastel beading   Vintage Josef gold beaded evening handbag on a Hobe jeweled frame



This cheerful little beauty is a bit smaller in size but also is about as adorable as they come.  The all over bright white and tightly beaded background is spotless and damage free.  The decorative pastel embroidery is hand worked in the Tambour Beauvais stitch and is similarly executed on each side.  The colors are strong, without fading or snags, shows very well, as does the entire purse.  The gold tone brassy frame is in excellent functioning order, clasp is snug and hinges are fine.  The top is decorated with a braid of coordinating glass beads and faux pearls, very appealing.


The interior off white satin lining carries the designer stamp on a rather roomy pocket.  The lining has no tears, it is very stable, gently used but does have a little yellowing to the very outer edges, not showing too well in the photo.  This charmer has been professionally cleaned, the age related discolor is certainly not offensive.  This lovable purse, stuffed with tissue, measures 4 & 1/2 in height by 7 in width, the chain handle drops 4 & 1/2 inches.  The condition is near pristine with perhaps one or two missing beads somewhere, it's truly in marvelous condition.  It's oh so sweet, I know you'll enjoy it.
