I found a wonderful Egyptian Revival beaded bag with a broken and rather plain frame. I had a great Egyptian revival celluloid purse frame with no bag. I had a restorer remove the bag off the old broken frame and add it to this frame creating a stunning Egyptian Revival purse that is also historically accurate for a 1920s purse.

Dress, Mme. Percy, England, ca. 1910. Aqua silk satin with cream embroidery, net, and black velvet. In the early 20th century, cultivated women regarded pastels and muted shades as refined and "lady-like." This aqua silk is muted by a layer of black net and ivory lace.
