Although this vintage Czechoslovakian rhinestone little handbag was created in a traditional Czech style, there is nothing ordinary about it's decorative design.

Completely made by hand, these little evening bags continue to be appreciated, not only for their visual appeal but also for their early position in the history of rhinestone purses.

These photos were taken without flash, in natural room daylight. You can see how eager these rhinestones are to show off their true beauty and radiant nature. Each of the stones is claw set into prongs that have taken on a vintage patina, the attached to an ivory background grid which holds the purse together. The stones are rather large and reasonable close together. The additional central design is enhanced with long rectangular faceted rhinestones which exhibit a bit of an Art Deco flair. All of the stones are intact, secure, clear and damage free. The interior maintains it's lining, pocket and label, it does show aging but is without wear or tear and looks better and cleaner than the photo. The handle is also constructed of rhinestones. I did have to take a few stitches to secure one end of the handle better than it was but all is in very fine vintage condition, nothing is pulling apart. The original zipper works nice and smooth. For it's age, this Czech handbag is quite lovely. Lying flat, it measures, without the handle, 4 in height by 4 in width, the handle drops the purse by 2 inches. This little Czech beauty will decorate your dresser with a splash from the Deco era.
