Scenic Beaded Purses Facts & Tips


Vintage Beaded Purse, Antique Butterfly Handbag

Click Here To View More Scenic Beaded Purses


This is a sweet and charming vintage beaded pouch style purse from the 1900 to 1920 era. The butterfly motif is a favorite amongst collectors, who can resist it.

This purse offers a soft pattern, not overly intrusive, yet very pretty, all on a clear sparkling crystal cut and faceted background bead. 


The bag has an adorable shape and will carry only your true essentials.  The colors range from multi blues and greens to browns, amber, ruby red and yellow.  The lay-out is quite attractive and is sure to turn many eyes. Above the clear background bead is an upper band of emerald green beads. The rounded bottom is finished off with the fully beaded ball and fringed tassel. All colors are wonderfully coordinated, I think this purse is darling and it has been thoroughly cleaned for your enjoyment.


These photos are excellent and depict all elements of the purse very well. I'm showing both sides of the purse in the pictures so you can properly judge it as worthy.  I have looked this purse over closely and I find it to be in extra fine condition. It securely wraps the frame, along with the interior lining, which has been professionally replaced with a deep emerald green silk that matches the upper border. 


I will allow my photos to speak further about this purse. The color of the lining would not show exact, it's a deeper nicer emerald. This purse measures about 6 inches at it's widest, 7 inches to the end of the bag, the tassel hangs about more 3 inches and the chain handle drops 7 inches. I know you'll enjoy adding this unique treasure to your collection or wardrobe accessories, I love it and so will you.
