Floral Glass Beaded Bag on German Silver Gate-top Compact Frame 7) Inventory # 980857: Floral Glass Beaded Bag on German Silver Gate-top Compact Frame
This beautiful glass beaded floral bag arrived with a damaged crochet top and tow tiny pinholes. Geometric sawtooth borders edge the wide top band and frame the cornucopia pie section bottom band. The multicolor floral designs are well balanced and gleam from the subtle beige ground. The original beaded tassel, while present, was a bit shabby and has been appended to restore its former glory. The body was matched to the German silver gate-top frame with bezel set faceted amethyst stone atop the tiny flip-up compact in the lid. The original beige fabric lining was sound and has been retained. I think you will find this little jewel flawless. Measures 4 5/8" x 8" long.

Magnificent Art Deco Beaded Reticule 12) Inventory # C00075: Magnificent Art Deco Beaded Reticule
I'm always on the lookout for beaded bags with pizazz that need a little TLC. This amazing example has the stylized design, vibrant color and sparkle that would augment any collection. Gleaming iridescent blue, white, green and hot pink glass and black jet beads form the body. Repairs included fringe repair and relining with vintage pink silk to match the design. Please note the missing jet beads, revealing the brown silk of the knit body. Jet is fragile and, rather that attempt replacement when the exposed brown adds depth to the design, I opted to leave the body in its original condition. Judge for yourself with the detail pictures. Measures 7 x 8".
