Beaded Purses Facts & Tips

Sensational Hard Sided Vintage Beaded Box Purse

Back to Beaded Box Purses

This 1940's beaded box purse is just plain fun.  The exterior is covered with iridescent navy blue glass beads, a sparkling full array of subtle colors.

The brass tone frame wraps the opening of the purse and the cover, which is either celluloid, Lucite or Bakelite, I am sorry I really can't tell for sure.



The shape of the purse is wider at the bottom and gently narrows towards the top.  My photos show the top very well and the overall color tones throughout. The interior of the cover is mirrored and continues to show a good image along with some minor outer edge wear.  The black satin lining has a pocket and is in very fine, clean condition.


Overall the purse is very good to excellent, no bead loss or chips to the cover, slight scratching noticed only when tipped to the lighting just right.  Measuring at the base: 8 inches wide by 4 in height by nearly 5 in depth with the handle dropping 8 inches, you will find the beading secure and clean, this is a great hard-sided beaded box purse for your accessories, it is roomy and will accommodate even your cell phone, a wonderful addition to your wardrobe accessories.
