Beaded Delill Handbag

Pastel colored flowers cheerfully parade along the front of this absolutely beautiful handbag. The pattern is made of tiny glass beads all sewn into place across the entire bag. Even the handle is beaded!

Wouldn't this be gorgeous as a handbag for a wedding or graduation? Or even just for a special night out on the town!

I'm cleaning out some of my Mom's things, and this was in her dresser. It was given to her in the early 1960s by my grandmother.

The interior has the manufacturer's tag saying "Delill, hand made in Japan". Also inside is a label from Liebermann's in Saginaw, Michigan where my grandmother purchased it.

The bag is in excellent condition. Mom probably only used it a time or two. The silver-tone clasp works like a charm. The interior is lined with off-white satin.

The bag is about 9.5 inches at its widest point, and 5.5 inches high. The handle is about 10 inches long, just enough to slip over your wrist.
