EXQUISITE VINTAGE 1960s SPARKLING COPPER BEADED EVENING BAG MADE IN HONG KONG
This gorgeous vintage evening bag made in Hong Kong is encrusted with hundreds of sparkling copper round and elongated beads.
It was made in Hong Kong in the '60s and I am sure it was hand beaded as were most of the evening purses were that were made in Hong Kong at that time. The color of the evening purse is closest to the 1st photo. The frame is a lightly textured gold tone metal with a very secure clasp that snaps closed with a very firm snap . The long gold tone box link chain is very pretty and has lost none of its luster.
The color is beautiful in a deep copper shade with a gold tone when moved from side to side. The purse has elongated vertical bugle beads with tiny round copper bead rows that are twisted and at an angle in rows between. The bottom of the purse is very heavily beaded with the round beads in a lovely offset pattern. I do not see one bead missing on this beautiful vintage evening bag.
There is a pretty milk chocolate satin lining on the inside of the bag with a small pocket to put your license or a few bills.
The total length of the chain measures approximately 30” with a drop of 8-1/4" if the chain is double or 13-1/2” if single. The measurements are 6-1/2” at widest point across the bottom, 4-3/4” top to bottom and approximately 3/4“ wide across the bottom.
Just a spectacular vintage sparkling copper all beaded evening bag from Hong Kong for all of your special affairs.

We examine each item carefully and note any imperfections, but unless an item is said to be new, please don't expect it to be perfect & even some new items have small imperfections. I will always state in the description if there are any imperfections & I never do repairs but leave them to others who are better able to do them than me as that is not my expertise.
Please remember that unless specified all items have been used and will show varying signs of use or wear. We always list the obvious imperfections to the best of our abilities. However, some slight imperfections that will not show or affect wearing or using the item may slip by or not be considered worth mentioning.
Vintage nightgowns & peignoirs may be delicate so I do not wash them in the machine. I wash them in lukewarm water with Woolite or some other mild soap, then rinse & hang dripping wet in the shower.
Since these are vintage items, a bit of extra care needs to be taken with them so they remain beautiful & I definitely would never put a vintage nightgown or a peignoir in the dryer as it would ruin it.
