Beaded Purses Facts & Tips


Vintage 1920 Beaded Bag Purse, Sparkly

Not What You're Looking For?  Click Here To See More Antique Beaded Purses


This 1920 vintage knit handbag is large and roomy with a robust tassel.

The purse shimmers and sparkles in the most minimum of lighting.  The glass beads are medium sized, the background is faceted jet black.


The tassel is both generous in size and multi layered with varying lengths of fringe.  The purse is beaded with a 3/8 inch top band of deep orange round beads.  The center is banded with a floral row, white flowers on one side, orange, pink and white on the other side, very clever and unique.


The purse is sewn to the exterior of a nice gold embossed frame, perfectly and securely attached.  The interior is lined in a black cotton type fabric and is quite roomy, certainly will carry all your essentials, even a small cell phone.  The condition is superb, I find no bead loss or problems, no reason not to love this handbag.  I did have to secure the tassel onto the purse a little better but overall the purse is wonderful, a grand example of the flapper era.  Measurements are: 8 inches across the frame, 8 1/2 to the base of the bag, add a 4 inch tassel and the chain drops about 5 inches.  This lovely purse is in cleaned condition, looking barely carried.  You will find many occasions to add this accessory to your attire, it's great.
