1940s Art Deco BEADED FORMAL Evening Handbag
1920s TAPESTRY Flapper Evening Handbag
Found these two goodies yesterday while attending an estate sale –
This 1920s tapestry bag was made in Italy with excellent craftsmanship and still in impeccable condition. The shape is very similar to a saddle bag due to it’s flap over closure. As for the 1940s art deco style, this piece is in mint condition. I believe it was only worn once or twice (if that) and tucked away for many years. The lining is clean and all beading is in tack. Both formal bags were owned by an older (and extremely elegant) lady named Mrs. Lambert who originally lived in Paris for most of her life. I had such a lovely time chatting with this dear lady and rambling through her fancy wardrobe. I was lucky enough to score these two stunning pieces. Jackpot!
Both gorgeous bags will be available in the shop tomorrow morning 8/17
