Caviar Beaded Clutch with Matching Change Purse. 1960s. Maker: Lumured – Petite-Bead. Made in USA. Clear “caviar” beads clutch over stiffly woven ivory-colored purse. Circular embroidered pattern. Ruffled top edge with self-snapping closure. Inner pocket. Adorable matching change or mirror purse with tiny gold bow with rhinestones over snap closure.
I bought this at a local antique store partly because it was 50 percent off. But, cheapo that I am, I still thought it was a little too much—even though it was comparable to or better than some online prices. What really sold me, though, was that super cute change purse!

Next up: We are doing a mini-exhibit at Strathearn Park this Sunday! Very excited to be able to share a sampling of purses from The Vintage Purse Gallery. I'll be posting pics after the event.
