So I'm not normally a purse person, but this beaded bag caught my eye. Gold yellow bugle beads in scallops. The clasp is so beautiful with paste baguette rhinestones set in an split metal arch, ribbed at the top, the actual clasp is two tubes with round paste rhinestones. The decor and the clasp says to me Art Deco. The bag is beautifully lined in what feels like very thick silk or soft satin in cream color. Inside a tag says Hand Beaded In France. The initials GS inside a circle, might be a maker. There's a chain at the back, it was broken now fixed. The bag is lightly damaged as far as the beads, the clasp is tarnished, and two of the baguettes and three of the round stones are missing. Even with the damage it is an amazing bag, from what I can tell. Any information greatly appreciated. Thanks for looking.
