A wonderful collector’s piece made around 1810-1840.
The body of this handbag is made of fine glass beads with a rose and floral design. The frame is made of cut steel with a chain attached and the clasp works perfectly. The lining has very likely been replaced. There is minor wear on the outside at the bottom of the bag.
It measures 19cm from the top of the frame to bottom with a width of 13.5cm.
