Vintage gorgeous 1930s / 1940s black beaded handbag. The body of the purse and the handle are beaded. There is a large beaded piece attached to the metal Prentice zipper. The beads have a lovely shine to them that is hard to capture in a picture. I did not notice any missing beads. The bottom of the purse is no longer flat, it is bowed (from improper storage or from age). There is a label inside "Yarn Corp. of America Mary Lamb Lining"
Overall good condition with light wear. This bag could still be used but it is delicate and 70+ years old, so one would have to be careful with it.
