Antique Crocheted Steel Bead Fringe 1910 Art Nouveau Jeweled Clasp Bag

This purse is from the early 1910s Art Nouveau period and features a beautiful jeweled embossed clasp. The purse is tan crochet with a steel bead pattern and a row of looped fringes at the bottom. The interior is a red fabric that was most likely added at a later time.
