Restoring Antique Beaded Pursesby Evelyn Haertig
Synopses & Reviews
Book News Annotation:
This carefully prepared definitive reference follows the author's Antique Combs and Purses and More Beautiful Purses. She discusses in thorough detail the evolution of the beaded purse, restoration tools and techniques, the beads, the fringing, restoring body damage, the importance of frames and linings, and evaluating and collecting patterns. The text is abundantly illustrated and includes good-size color photos (most at least half-page) showcasing a wide variety of purses—delightful in their design and artistry—with commentary on their construction and value.
