1927 French Steel Cut Micro Beaded Metal Purse with Brass Hardware

1927 French Steel Cut Micro Beaded Metal Purse with Brass Hardware


Heralding from the Roaring 1920s, this exquisite French handbag features steel cut beading in metallic silver, gold, bronze, and black tones. Its interior was once lined with a delicate pink silk, though today the lining is not fully attached throughout the interior of the bag, but is still remains within it nonetheless. The silk is pure, fragile, and still brightly colored. It is punctuated by a matching twisted piping where the silk meets the metal frame of the bag. The bag’s original tag is still intact and legible, stating that the accessory was manufactured in France.

The beading expresses a symmetrical design reminiscent of the unique patterns of renowned hand-knotted Turkish rugs, which circulated the world during the ‘20s as their popularity increased. The bottom of the bag is lined with undulating beaded fringe, wherein one side is missing a few beads, though the body of the bag has no known missing beads. The overall effect of this purse boasts the famous geometries of authentic Art Deco design. Functional, sleek, and shining, pair this bag with your sharpest evening wear, add to your collection of striking historic fashions, or hang for a dramatic punch to your vanity or boudoir.
