The most adorable "Lustro-Pearl" antique mesh purse made by the Mandalian Manufacturing Company in the 1920s with the original box & information leaflet.
The patented process of "Lustro-Pearl" was to finish the bag " 'with Essence of Pearl', a very costly solution heretofore confined to High-Grade Pearl necklaces, can now be had on Mandalian Mesh Bags. Notice its lustrous and silky finish originated and made only by Mandalian Mfg. Company....." as the label reads.
It has the most stunning Art Deco design in enamel - the colours gold, greeen & brown are as vibrant & gorgeous as the day it was made. The whole bag is in good condition & is very usable as a dainty evening bag. It even has the original lining which is in good order. Look the part at the Flapper themed party with an original Flapper purse! Please enlarge photograph two to see the delightful enamel close-up & also the wonderful embossed frame which has exquisite flowers, foliage & Art Deco emblems along its length. The frame is signed "MANDALIAN MFG CO".
This antique mesh bag measures 9" long from the kiss closure to the end of the tassels, 4 1/4" wide & the chain handles is 7" tall.
