HOBE Josef purse with hand embroidered and glass beaded body

Designer: Hobe
Price: $1,498.00
Description HOBE Josef purse with hand embroidered and glass beaded body by the purse maker Josef and embellished by a rhinestone and gold tone frame by Hobe.  It is marked on a tag inside "Bags by Josef hand beaded in the USA", and the body is 11-1/2" by 5-1/2", the frame 8-1/2" by 1-3/4".  This is in excellent condition with lovely unfoiled cabochons and rhinestones set into the gold tone frame in the colors of aqua, pink, plum and clear.

They are brilliant and reflective and set off the hand beaded body beautifully.  Circa 1950, the purse is fitted on the inside and has a tiny cute clear plastic comb included.  Also shown here is a jpg of a vintage advertisement showing Hobe purses and giving the prices, back in the 1950's, as between and very expensive back then.    View   View   View   View   View
