Shipping to United States: $11.91

This beautiful antique jewelled purse purse frame dates from around 1940 . There are no markings on it but I feel it is French . The original chain handle is still attached . The push lock works perfectly and snaps shut . It measures 6 inches wide .
I have remade the purse in vintage knitted multi coloured silk which was once part of an Antique shawl . These shawls were made in the 1920 in vibrant colours reminiscent of India . The shawls inspired the Missoni family who subsequently bought the looms . . I have hand beaded the silk in silk in tiny vintage beads . The end of the bag is finished in gold bullion which was once part of military uniforms . A Czech brooch is pinned to the front echoing the colours of the silk .
The interior of the purse is lined in matching silk and decorated with vintage ribbon and hand crochet flowers from Turkey .
