2 Vintage Purses ~ 1 French Beaded & 1 Tapestry

Offered for auction are two elegant vintage purses, one a French micro-bead purse and the other an unmarked Tapestry purse.

This French beaded purse measures 8" x 6-1/4" and has a very fancy Brass frame stamped " MADE IN FRANCE " and with a chain carrying loop. I couldn't seem to capture a good picture of the design on the purse or it's true color. Overall gold background with a faint scene showing a house, trees and birds. Yellow silk interior with a small change purse stitched to one side. Overall, very good condition with only some loss to the beaded fringe at bottom, otherwise no holes or damage . Very good frame and clasp.

The Tapestry purse with 18c European street scenes with figures, 4-3/4" x 6-1/2." The clasp button is topped with what seems to be Lapis and t are blue highlights in the brass frame. Very good condition, chain loop, yellow satin inside with matching change purse and mirror though the glass is discolored.

Both show much better than they photograph, a nice pair to add to any collection. Pictures show good detail, NO RESERVE!

Shipping is by the USPS with insurance.
