A beautiful vintage beaded crewel work over-the-shoulder purse by Soure Bag New York.
Hundreds of tiny sparkling multi-colored beads accented with 4 tiny metal leaves and "jewels". The crewel work on the front of the purse looks like a lavender tulip and a pale yellow tulip with green leaf "jewels".

The purse has a pink interior with clear plastic over it to protect the lining so it will never get dirty from pens, lipstick, etc. Great idea!

Nice gold-tone chain and the clasp on the purse closes with a sturdy snap. There is some gold-tone missing on the top of the metal frame of the purse from age but would not be visible to anyone unless closely examining it which I am sure no one will be doing.

There could be some beads missing but it does not look like it to me as there are so many there. The back of the purse is plain and there are a few tiny nearly invisible double pinhead spots that one can barely see.

Measurements: 10-1/3" across the widest part of the front of the purse - 9" from the top to the bottom of the purse - gold chain handle is 13".

It was hard to pinpoint the year made - could have been 50s, 60s or 70s but whenever it was, it's a beautiful purse!



Care Instructions

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.

The items are sold as we find them. We do not dry clean, launder, alter or repair vintage clothing and they should be cleaned or washed upon arrival. Please make your selection carefully & check the measurements as there is no return on clothing or other items.
