I would love to know anything about this purse. I love it the beads are so small and its very elegant. I can't find any markings on it to use as some kind of starting place and I haven't been able to find one close enough to identify any era. The frame is brass I believe and the beads are micro beads from what I can tell.

    From the design of the embroidery I would say your beaded purse is from the 1930's but it could also be 1940's. I have a book "Sachs a main" by Judith Miller where they show bags by era. There is a bag there with an embroiderystyle that resembles yours and it sais 1930's.
    I´m thining there is a chance that yours might be a Ed B. Robinson purse even if not labeled. Search on line and look at this:
    Your purse is Lovely!
