Antique Steel Cut Beaded Purses

beaded purses

I came across these beautiful antique purses at a recent sale and snapped them up.  The silver one is steel cut beads. They all date from late 1800’s to early 1900’s.  I believe this was the art nouveau period.  The floral one is tiny glass beads and the gold one is steel cut beads.  All are in very good condition.  They are for sale in my booth at the Almonte Antique Market in Almonte ON.

This one is missing part of the strap that inserts through holes in the top of the bag.  It is beautifully detailed and much more impressive in real life.

Please note that the one with the roses and the gold coloured one are now SOLD!!

    Do you still have those beaded purses and what are you asking for them or what were you asking for them?

      Hi, I believe I only have the gold chain mesh purse left. I will check when I go back to Almonte to see if it is still there and what price I have on it. I believe the one with the roses sold for around $50 because of the damage and the other darker steel cut purse was priced at $95.
