Imagine yourself in Czechoslovakia in the 1920's.... During the height of the Art Deco era, you are going to the opera in your special occasion gold and jewel tone long, slinky, silk dress. To match the dress, you must have the perfect handmade beaded opera bag; something in jewel tones to match your sexy dress.
This Art Deco era opera bag is in such perfect overall condition it is obvious it has never been used. The purse is a very rare jewel tone color combination of glass beads in deep garnet red and bright gold. The silk/cotton lining is dark sage green with a chocolate brown border. This opera bag still has the original tag signed Made in Czechoslovakia.
The tag is a little frayed, but the lettering is perfectly legible. The purse has a brown drawstring cord and many black metal loops that serve drawstring devices. There is also a long gold beaded tassel on the bottom that was not photographed (it was tuck up inside the bag accidentally.) The purse is also beaded up inside the bottom area.
The interior of the bag is about 7 1/2" long x 4 1/2" wide or 19 cm x 11.5 cm. The entire bag is is pristine perfectly clean like new condition with no signs of wear or other imperfections. All of the beads are original and present and in perfect shape. This is a great price for this mint condition signed Czech opera bag. Very few opera bags still have their original tag, very few are in this condition, and it is rare to find these magnificent jewel tone colors.
