1950s Vintage Beaded Purses

Wednesday 4 June 2014

I have grown quite a lovely collection of 1950s beaded vintage purses! I love the detailed beading, their unique shapes and how glamorous they are.

The black beaded purse with floral tapestry is my favourite one, It could possibly be late 1940s or if not it is 1950s vintage like the other purses.

I have bought them all over the place and I am usually not even looking for them which is always very exciting. I have always loved vintage purses and have quite a good collection of various styles now, I must remember to blog them with my outfits more often!

I also love my books on vintage handbags, inside each book there are amazing photos and information about a number of handbags from all different eras!

Do you have a favourite purse (vintage or modern)?

  1. Those two pastel purses and the white fan pattern one are simply divine! I love the black floral one as well, but with such a soft spot in my heart for pastels, it had to be those ones. Stunning! Thank you for sharing your collection. ♡

  2. Oh these bags are gorgeous! I love collecting vintage bags as well, particularly clutches. And isn't it the best when you stumble upon a great bag? It's like getting a present each time haha. :)

  3. Wow lovely collection! I need one but can't find THE one! Haha!
    I want a cream / ivory one, with roses, not too small, not too big. Am I a complicated woman, yes or no? Haha

  4. I have one like the white floral one. I have never seen a black one, I love them all. They are all quite different when you look a the details.

  5. I've been eyeing up a couple of beaded purses in my local vintage shop for a while now, this might have swung my vote!

  6. What a beautiful collection, thank you for sharing. I often come across similar ones, I think I will have to start bringing them home......
