I am happy to offer another lovely French glass beaded evening handbag from the 1940 era, this one is just so adorable and charming.

Spritzer and Furhmann French pastel beaded evening purse

This purse is completely beaded by hand, designed in France, for the specialy stores of Spritzer & Furhmann, from a time when elegance was a necessity.

This little beauty is an adorable piece of work, with it's sparkling cut and facted bead work. The color palette is wonderful with pastel tones of seafoam baby blue, pale pinks, yellow, coral, blue and a fabulous shade of plum purple lavender, sort of like a  magenta tone, all on an off white/ivory background. Some of the colors were achieved by passing colored thread through the beads and some of the color is in the beads themselves. This is a purse that has a good amount of sparkle, as the light reflects off the cut and faceted glass beads and this purse looks fabulous in night lighting. This purse arrived to me in nice vintage condition but needed a little care. It received a professional cleaning and is now a breadth of fresh air. One of the two beaded handles needed a little attention, as it was thinning in the center, so I re-enforced the beading to the best of my abilities. I consider this purse to be in very fine condition. I do believe it's next own will be delighted with it. This is one of those adorable smaller purses that is huggable, just a really cute purse. It will carry with a medium hand but it is not overly soft.

The gold tone frame is layered with coordinating glass beads and the round beaded clasp is the lift up to open type. The purse opens well and closes properly with a good snap. The purse is well attached to the frame at all points. This sweet purse was made with 2 handles, not many of these vintage evening bags were made that way. Both handles are secure to the purse and will do their job well. The interior is lined in a quality ivory satin with a single pocket and it comes with a little accessory bag, as shown. This purse does not have a wide side gusset, it is only about 1 1/4 inches in depth, so this purse will carry only your essentials. Stuffed with tissue paper, this purse measures 4 3/4 inches in height, 8 1/4 across the bottom, 6 1/4 across the frame and the double beaded handles drop the purse by 4 inches. If you've been looking for a vintage French beaded evening bag that is a cutie pie and has some reflective qualities, please consider adding this one to your repertoire of purses.
