Fabulous vintage bag from the 1950s decorated with shells and beads in a collage style, in a stiffened cream hessian type material with shells, flowers, velvet leaves and beads stitched onto the front. The edges of the bag and handles are covered with a transparent pvc. With top handles

  • Fabulous bead and shell encrusted handbag.
  • Cream colour base material.
  • Hand beaded with real shells, faux flowers and beads of varying sizes and colour
  • Interior pocket
  • Brass closure

Condition: Good. It’s a little crumpled in places, see photos and there is feint foxing here and there but I don’t think it detracts too much and this bag is still very much usable. The lining fabric has a tear around the brass clasp also.
