1910s Floral Beaded Vintage Evening Bag with a Celluloid Frame

This pretty and evocative evening bag was created in the 1910s. 

Condition Report:

Very Good - There is some loss of beading to the tassels on the bag. This is consistent with age and use and does not detract from the overall appeal of the piece. It is still fully functional.
