HOBE Josef purse with hand embroidered beaded body

HOBE Josef purse with hand embroidered and beaded body by the purse maker Josef and 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 11-1/2" by 5-1/2", 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 really reflective and set off the hand beaded body beautifully.

Circa 1950, the purse is all fitted on the inside and has a tiny cute clear plastic comb there, too.

Also shown here is a jpg of a vintage ad showing Hobe purses and giving the prices, back in the 1950's, as between and very expensive back then. View View View ViewView
