    Welcome! No writing in the bag? What is the material of the interior? (Hard to tell from pic). Are the straps suede?
    Clues to dating this for you so need the intel.

    Does the zipper pull say Tony?

    When you google it try using the description scalloped beaded bag. I'm sure you've been getting some crazy results from the peacock description:)

    Hi everyone,
    The material seems to be velvet in & out there is no makers name or year,
    the zipper say Tony.
    I have been searching on google, the style & design looks like is art nouveau or art deco.

    Hi is my opinion...
    I think it is from the eary 70's probably made in Hong Kong.
    The metal parts of the purse, Tony on the zipper, and the general look lead me to this conclusion. I am certainly not positive and welcome other ideas.

    Hi AmberRose,
    I really appreciate your opinion, I couldn't find a resource site with info about who and when. If I had to make a considered guess, I'd say 1920s-1930s, based on the style the way the bead work is done.

    Let's hope Phil is right.

    Once again thank you!!????

    Well I hope it is but I don't think TONI existed back then. Plus shoulder straps didn't really hit until at least the 40s. I'm still in the 60/70s camp. Let me know what else you find. It really is gorgeous.
