# 5172. A fancy beaded evening bag. Late 19th early 20th century. Unmarked. Silver plated frame. The detailed glass beading in tapestry style includes roses and rococo style embellishments. The background is ivory the foliage is in realistic colored beads and the rococo decorations are in silver glass beads. Condition: some beading edge staining close to the metal frame; the bottom fringed beading is fragile and mostly removed with many pieces stored in the bag. The inside of the bag is lined with lambskin which is unusual: most of these style bags are lined with silk or some other textile. The opposite sides of the bag have identical decorations. From a Newport Rhode Island Estate. Price: $195.00.
