Here is a wonderful vintage beaded handbag that was made by Gaymode in Italy. The shiny yellow plastic handle has a gold colored latch at the top. The body of the fabric bag is crocheted with raffia. Big yellow beads are crocheted onto the bag.
The purse stands 7 1/2 ” tall to the top of the latch. The purse is 9″ wide at the widest part of the body, including the beads. The mouth opens to 3 ½ inches wide. The inside of the purse is just wide enough for your hand to go inside it.
This purse is very clean, inside as well as outside. This vintage 1960’s purse is in excellent condition. There are no stains or any signs of wear on the outside or inside.
The color of the purse is as follows: The beads are bright yellow as is the handle as well. The raffia itself is a soft yellow in color. The inside material is a bright yellow in color as well.
