Elegant Designer Beaded Handbag By Jorelle Bags

Hand Made in Belgium Evening Purse

Custom Search


It's been too long since I have acquired a hand beaded evening purse by the esteemed designer Jorelle. Made by hand in Belgium, this designer is well known for their elegant evening handbags. This 1930's creation has all the characteristics of the finer evening bags of that era.  The tightly beaded exterior gives this purse a solid feel, not as fluid as some of the softer made purses but not too stiff either, just right. It will carry all of your essentials, for a successful night out, without a problem.

The background bead is a bright yet soft white, not a stark white but nice and white, without yellowing. The decorated floral display offers a rich combination of pastel tones in pink, baby blue and lavender, all showing well in the photos. Pale sea green leaves round out the colors. The added golden amber beads are in the center of the flowers as well as the additional sprigs. Both sides of the purse are identical, except the flowers are in reverse, as shown in the last photo. The condition of this purse is remarkable, few could survived in better shape. You might find a couple of beads missing on the entire purse, but not many. There are no stains, snags or flaws to speak of and this purse has been professionally cleaned for your future enjoyment.


The frame is covered in it's original colorful beadwork, with the additional tones of ruby red and deeper green, as well as multi tones of soft white beading. The lift to open clasp is a cute filigree tab but is covered in matching bead work, all secure and in place. The golden brassy tone framing is bright and is nicely embossed along it's sides and edges. The frame opens and closes as it should, all straight and proper, hinges are good. I see no significant issues with the frame or the beading for that matter. Nothing loose or out of order.


The interior egg shell soft white satin lining is clean and damage free showing very little if any age, no apparent spots or damage, in fact, this purse has been professionally cleaned. The chain handle is the snake style and drops the purse by nearly 5 inches. You can see from the profile photo that this purse has a nice wide gusset and will carry your necessities. Stuffed with tissue, it measures 4 in height by 7 in width and the sides span out 2 inches. This gorgeous Jorelle  beaded evening handbag is a stunning presentation. I am thrilled to offer it from a private collection, a very pretty purse is superior condition.
