Here is my great grandmother's beautiful vintage beaded purse that has been passed down to me. Unfortunately it's history has been lost. I have been trying to find out more about it such as maker and era. It is completely covered in beads - even the handle. I think the beads are glass and the larger beads in the design are some type of pearl? I think the clasp top closure is filigree gold or maybe brass? It has a padded satin lining with a slip pocket. I would love to learn more about this beauty that has been passed down to me! Please if anyone can help with any information I would greatly appreciate it and thanks!

    Does anyone know what era and who made this lovely purse?

    I think this is a 1940's bag. I saw a similar beaded handle in one of my research books. Very pretty and in great condition.
