I found a wonderful Egyptian Revival beaded bag with a broken and rather plain frame. I had a great Egyptian revival celluloid purse frame with no bag. I had a restorer remove the bag off the old broken frame and add it to this frame creating a stunning Egyptian Revival purse that is also historically accurate for a 1920s purse.

I need to make a replica of this bag! It is by far my most popular pin. I'm pretty sure I could make it for less than $795 too. Of course, I could never find the same frame. But I bet I could make a stunning version for about half.
