Another lovely beaded evening bag! There is interior label “Hand Made In Belgium”. This is one of the older beaded Belgium bags we have listed, it has been used and does have some missing beads. Interior is clean. This is a very nice, feminine vintage handbag.
Another neat beaded evening bag! This little bag has an attached loop on back for carrying but I would recommend just using as a clutch because if you put much in the bag, the weight may damage the loop. All beads appear to be present but there are oodles and I may have overlooked some but I didn’t notice any missing. Bag measures 6” x 4”, has interior label “Hand Made in Belgium”, and is in super condition. Original mirror is still inside bag. Pretty!

This is the last of the Josef handbags from my collection! This one is a beaded bag, has interior label “Bag by…Josef, Hand Made in Italy”. As with the majority of my handbags, I never used it and it is in excellent vintage condition.
Neat coin (or essentials) purse! It’s in excellent condition and inside has “Made in India, Hand Made”.
Another Josef handbag from my collection! This one is an evening bag that is elegant in its’ simplicity. It’s navy blue and the only ornamentation/adornment is one dozen sparkly clear rhinestones on the clasp. There is a small removable mirror in an interior slot. Handbag looks new inside and out (I know that I never used it!). Josef handbags are difficult to find because they are so highly sought by collectors. It took me many years to find the ones that I have listed.

This Josef handbag has been a part of my vintage collection for many years! Josef bags are rather difficult to find – over the years, I collected less than a dozen. This one has bronze color beads and is clutch style with tension closure. It has two interior labels – “Bonwit Teller” and “Bags by Josef, hand beaded in Japan”. The original Bonwit Teller mirror is included as well as a small black coin purse. Handbag measures 8 5/8” x 4 ¾” x 1 1/8” (closed (6 ¼” open)...
From my collection, this listing has a lovely clear Lucite clutch style handbag! The design is of cherry clusters front and back with front being accented with clear rhinestones. Handbag measures 7 ¼” x 4 ¾” (to top of clasp) and 1 ¼” closed (4 ½” open), and it still has the soft plastic side panels that are so often missing on these handbags...
This Little Earth handbag is a little different than ones usually found – it’s Germany! Purse is in very good condition with a small fleck of missing red color – that’s it. Very nice handbag – unusual, collectible, and usable!
Neat purse that can be carried as clutch or shoulder bag! It’s silver color mesh (there are no missing pieces/it’s light reflection in photos) and has a silver color chain that can be folded inside the bag. Measures 6 ¼” x 5 ½” x 2 ¾” (those are closed measurements). Has interior label “Whiting & Davis, Since 1876”. There is a small discoloration at bottom on one side that is not detrimental and can be seen in photo if you look closely...
Neat hat! Excellent condition and has interior label “Suzy Michelle Original”.
Neat hat that looks new! Interior label: “Emme Inc, New York” and another one “Bonwit Teller”. The original handwritten receipt shows purchase price of $32 plus 75 cents sales tax and was purchased at Bonwit Teller, North Michigan Avenue, Chicago, ILL 60611”. There is also an extra piece – perhaps to be tied in a bow? – see photo.
This is an unusual hat – I all it a Leprechaun hat – look at the photo and you’ll see why! Label has: “Original by Jomar Sherman, Chicago”.
This little hat is so cute – it has the “v” shape front! Hat is navy blue color with a “pom” on top and a red feather. Interior label is “Bentley Bonnets”.
Another neat hat! This one is taupe color with attached feather accents and it’s turban style.
Isn’t this an interesting hat? It’s black with rows of brown polka-dot ruffles! Excellent condition. Neat hat!
This listing has an M.A. Hadley ring holder! It can be hung on a wall but is also free standing. Excellent condition!
This listing has an excellent condition pair of Belle Sharmeer stockings! These are seamed stockings, size 10, and the color is light taupe with same color seams. As a general rule, size 10 vintage stockings fit up to shoe size 7 ½. Nylons are in the original gift envelope from “Scott & Smith, Campbellsville, Kentucky”. They are 51 gauge (51 knitting loops per 1 ½ inches) and 15 denier (gossamer sheers for “the dressiest occasions”).
These gloves are so pretty! They’re white with 3 faux pearls at wrist and are size 6 – 6 ½. They are in excellent condition (there’s a very tiny discoloration on left ring finger) – that’s it! Gloves are in their original “Wear-Right Gloves” packaging with original “Made in Italy” tag which indicates size to be M (medium). Neat!
