    It needs a lot of love, so for now this metal beaded handbag is displayed flat. Transitional nouveau to art deco design on 5-1/2"x7" beaded handbag. The postcard is "Mele Department store circa 1900" by Aleardo Villa (1865-1906) courtesy of Museum of Fine Arts, Boston "Leonard A. Lauder Postcard Archive". Thanks for looking, all comments welcome!

      This must have been a show stopper when it was worn back in the day. The piece has the beauty that only the finest chain mail look can muster !~

      I believe you will make it great again,Val.

      Ivonne - thank you! I don't know if I can properly restore this because it is very heavy and the cotton thread seems to fall apart the more I handle it. I plan to lay it flat in a glass display.

      Thank you also to ho2cultcha!

      Mary! This is gorgeous and yes, definitely the right person got it. I know you can fix this one... easy breezy for you! if you don't have the beads, I do... you can pick them up at Thanksgiving when you come for dinner! That's your official invitation ;)

      Beautiful, such small beads!
    9. valentino97 valentino97, 2 years ago
      Share - thank you - I really love this design. The seller was such a nice person and she didn't want to let it go. Passing a beloved item to the next one for awhile?

      Elisabeth - the metal beads here are size 15 which is very small. Most steel cuts are 13 and shoe clip steel cuts are 11. I just bought another damaged beaded bag (I'll share it on FB) made of size 17 - smaller than a pencil lead. It was damaged so I "harvested" the old steel cut beads and I already made something with those tiny beads. But, won't share on CW, it's not "old"

      Yessss, that's always the fun part...pass it on! So much really does come back to you when you do that! That's just a side plus to it!
