Vintage French beaded purse for Helene Dale of Paris France 

This beautiful wardrobe accessory is well made and has all of the expressive characteristics of the Parisian beaded evening handbags of the 1940 era. This particular example is especially appealing with it's tiny soft white or creamy white background bead and although it is not stark white, it is white. The exquisitely embroidered pastel flowers are so cheerful and uplifting. They are enhanced with clear cut and faceted beads that sparkle and really add life to this purse. This is one of those purses that is easy to love, especially if you are a girly girl and love the ultimate in femininity. This purse has been professionally cleaned and completely refreshed, it is near pristine in overall appearance, actually, I don't see any negatives whatsoever.

The color palette is absolutely charming and these close-ups show a good representation of what to expect, perhaps a tad bit more pink than what would photograph. The condition of the beadwork is fabulous. There are thousands and thousands of tiny beads covering this bag, all snugly stitched together and there must be one or 2 missing but nothing that stands out or is noticeable. This evening handbag carries with soft hand, silky and supple to the touch.  I haven't acquired many Helene Dale purses through the decades but this one has to be the loveliest.


Look at this gold tone frame, is it not fabulous with it's fully beaded and coordinating embroidered workmanship? The metal work is lovely and bright showing wee signs of age. The lift up to open clasp is beaded as well and all structural elements of this purse function as they should, opening and closing properly. The interior soft white satin lining is spotless,  in wonderful vintage condition, as shown. It has a single pocket with the Helene Dale label. This purse, stuffed with tissue, measures 5 or so inches in height by 8 1/2 inches across the bottom, 7 inches across the frame, the side gusset is 1 1/4 inches in depth and the brassy toned slinky styled chain handle drops the purse by 5 inches. I don't find many of these elegant vintage beaded evening bags by Helene Dale of Paris, this one is truly worth considering, it's the epitome of feminine eloquence.
