Mary Frances "Scrolled" Leather Hand-Beaded Drawstring Shoulder Bag

Beaded luxury! While meeting with a vintage dealer, Mary Frances found kaftans with intricately beaded necklines, which she thought would perfectly accentuate the beauty of a leather drawstring bag. This beautiful piece features a shimmering, sueded leather body with scroll-style beadwork framing its lower front. This captivating beadwork is done with multi colored beads in a variety of shapes and sizes.

Two rows of rounded studs trail down the center front of the design and a drawstring secures the bag's opening. The flat shoulder strap and trim boast a semi-glossy finish. The interior offers two slip pockets and a zipper pocket for storage. Each bag comes with a certificate of authenticity and extra beads for repairs.
