Vintage beaded bag

This  beaded flapper purse is a beauty, even though it has seen better days. It is surprising how heavy it is. It's a great little piece to study, simply for the pattern.  Someone removed the purse frame and the purse lining. The beading was entirely executed on black netting. The purse straps are made of rolled black netting and were then beaded. This little piece is now living on my etsy site, OldElements.
