Antique Edwardian Reticule Beaded Drawstring Flapper Evening Purse

Antique Edwardian Reticule Beaded Drawstring Flapper Evening Purse

Product Information

I found this beautiful antique beaded drawstring flapper evening purse at a local estate sale.  The estate sale lady thought it was from around 1917 - 1920's.  An antique purse collector

said that in her opinion, it looked like an Edwardian drawstring reticule, from 1910 - 1915 at the latest.  She said brass loops were commonly used for the drawstring during that time.                        

The outside of the evening bag has lovely sparking smokey grey beads, with a looped fringe near the top, and a 3" tassel on the bottom.  It measures 7" long, 4" wide across the middle,                                                        

lying flat, and has a 7 1/2" drop from the handles.  I only noticed a few beads missing on the handles.  The inside is a black crochet.  I have tissue paper inside, so you can see the pattern. 

There are (what look to be) medium brown colored celluloid rings, for the drawstring to go through.  Excellent vintage condition!  This exquisite antique reticule purse, whether used by an

Edwardian lady, or lovely Flapper of the Roaring '20's, surely would have tales to tell!  A lovely Flapper drawstring purse for your antique collection!

Shipping, delivery confirmation, and insurance, is included in the total price for a buyer in the continental U.S.A.  I will gladly combine shipping for multiple purchases.  Texas residents

will be charged retail sales tax at check out.  Buyer from Hawaii, Canada, the U.K., Europe, Japan, China, and Australia, contact me for shipping cost.
