1950s White Beaded Clamshell Handbag with Gold Tone Hardware


Shipping to United States: $7.75

This lovely vintage purse is the perfect accessory for any upscale occasion!

This handbag was made in Hong Kong during the 1960s. It is a timeless style, and a functional accessory that will go with countless looks!

The purse is heavily beaded on both the front and back, as well as the strap. The color is just slightly off white, which contrasts nicely against the gold-tone brass hardware.

The body of the bag measures 8 inches tall, by 11 inches wide. The beaded strap hands approximately 6 inches long.

The purse opens up clamshell-style to reveal a cream colored lining. There is a small pocket in the lining that is the perfect size for holding credit cards. The bag is large enough to hold your iphone, and all of the other purse essentials.

Please note that the lining has some slight lipstick stains inside the pocket, and a small amount of discoloration at the inside corner (see close up photos). Over all this purse is in very good vintage condition. There are no holes or missing beads, and it was stored in a smoke free environment.


Gladly accepts Paypal and credit/debit cards.
