A vintage 1960s very heavily beaded HAND MADE IN HONG KONG  evening purse.

The purse is encrusted with very heavy beading on both sides with tiny white glass beads and sparkling sequins set with an individual glass bead.  The pattern is intricate and beautiful and must have taken a very long time to make by hand!  Beaded swags and flower designs on both sides of the purse.  A lot of work went into making this gorgeous vintage purse.  The satin lining is a creamy ivory and there is a small side pocket inside to slip your license and some bills inside.  There is a gold-tone frame on the purse with a dark gold chain which will also fit inside the purse if you want to carry it as a clutch.  The evening bag measures 9-1/2” long at the widest point at the bottom, 5-1/2” from top to bottom, 1” wide measured at the end of the frame towards the top and the chain is 12-1/4” long.

I may have overlooked some loose or missing beads/sequins but I really don't see any.  If there are some missing there are loads of them there and they will not be missed especially at night.  No holes or rips in the heavy satin lining but there is some over all light soiling but no one will see that other than you and that is what happens with evening bags and it is not uncommon especially considering this purse is about 57 - 58 years old and has had a former life.

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.
