French Denis Francet Evening Bag - Circa 30's-40's
Beautiful Denis Franchet beaded and embroidered evening bag. The bag has black beading with Petit Point embroidered roses in bright pinks and greens. The original black silk lining is in excellent condition and marked "Handmade Denis Francet Paris". It has 2 pockets each with a thin line of gold stitching across the top. The clasp is decorative only and is gold-toned with a design in black and subtle gold-colored beads. Across the top of the bag are rows of black and gold beading that frame a stunning enameled design in pale pink, green and a touch of burgundy and teal colors. There were six decorative clear beads on each side of the enameling however two are missing and one is loose. The bag snaps shut and stays closed. However I have included a photo of the side of the bag when it is closed. I think it can be an easy fix if you think it necessary but I prefer to leave that to the buyer. The beading and embroidery is in excellent condition as is the lining and the brass-toned chain handle. The bag is circa 30's-40's.
