Delill French designer white and pastel beaded evening purse with porcelain and beaded frame

This vintage beaded evening purse was hand beaded in France for the prominent designer Delill. It's so hard to find beautiful Delill handbags and this one is in splendid, perfect, just about pristine condition. This elegant evening bag is covered with tiny snowy white, bright seed beads and skillfully enhanced with raised pastel flowers, adding a bit of colorful dimension to an already marvelous purse. This handbag has been professionally cleaned and is ready for your enjoyment, suffering not one lost bead or any other issue of concern.

My photos do a good job of depicting the colors and the radiance of this purse. Some photos were taken under overhead lighting but the photos of the frame were taken in natural daylight. The golden tone frame is a gorgeous work of art with a layering of white beads and on top of that, pink, gold and pale blue, all forming an exquisite design. The center arena has a stunning Limoges porcelain plaque, decorated in a Fragonard romance theme. The porcelain is prong set and encircled with faux pearls. All decorative elements are in sound, secure and damage free condition. This is a very pretty purse frame and makes a superb tiara for this purse. This handbag is completely hand stitched and it is in excellent, dare I say near perfect condition. There are no stains, no bead loss, snags, wears or negatives that deter from it's beauty. This purse carries with a medium firm hand but it not overly stiff, this purse will hold it's shape nicely.


My photos are expressing all of the details very well. The artwork on the porcelain is quite lovely and the paint is intact, having strong coloring. The pearls around the porcelain are in good condition but if you use a magnifier, you will discover a bit of wear on some of the skins. The porcelain is well sized at over 1 inch side to side and of an inch front to back. I have looked this purse over closely and have secured any beads that needed it but I must say that this purse came to me in impeccable condition. This bag has been well cared for and I couldn't be happier with it. The purse is well attached to the gold toned frame and the clasp is an appealing decorative lift up to open charm with beaded accents. The purse opens and closes properly with no structural issues to report.


The interior is lined in a bright ivory, nearly white quality satin, it has a single designer stenciled pocket. The Delill stamp is difficult to read but you can still make it out, although it is faded from the cleaning of the purse. The lining is in very gently, barely used condition, no wears, tears or frays. The backside of the purse is decorated with a smaller floral version in the same colors as the frontside. This purse carries with a slinky style chain handle that drops the purse by almost 5 inches. Stuffed with tissue, this beaded evening handbag measures 5 inches in height, 8 inches across the bottom, 7 inches across the frame and the gusset is 1 inch or so in depth. Delill is one of my favorite designers of elegant beaded evening bags and this stylish and chic purse expresses why I admire Delill purses.
