Chosen from among the leading private dealer and museum collections, these primarily nineteenth and twentieth century purses are among the finest glass-beaded metal, tapestry, embroidered, plastic, and home-crafted examples known.

  • The pictures are lovely....the content is elementary at best. The price guide is rendered useless because the historical information is totally lacking. I was looking for a book that would describe time periods for the purses and identification. This book is nothing more than pretty pictures and a few lovely quotes. The little bit of historical information in the book is just copied ads that are so small you would need a magnifying glass to read them. SAVE YOUR MONEY! Unless you like pretty pictures.

  • This book provides a wide variety of different types of vintage purses to be found in the market today. It provides useful, helpful information about each style of purse selected to be included. Schwartz is a superb writer and I hope to see more. I would like to see a second book by the author that includes different examples of what to look for when buying vintage purchases. An "authenticity" section would be greatly appreciated as well. Great addition to any collector's library.

  • This is a history of BEADED purses, from Victorian to the 1920s. The title of the book is very deceptive. If you are looking for a guide to vintage purses that extends to later than the 20s, don't bother with this.

  • I loved this book! Great photos, interesting photos and good ideas about starting restoration.

  • If a picture is worth a thousand words, then this gem of a book is a superlative example. Brimming with exquisitely beautiful photographs, each and every page is a feast for the eyes. Ms. Schwartz's inclusion of the painstaking process that goes into the creation of these delicate feminine accoutrements provides the reader with an astounding appreciation for how difficult the craft for such a practical accessory actually was. A "Must Have" for amateurs as well as serious collectors!
    I have already ordered my copy of her latest book (at press now), "Purse Masterpieces," which promises, not only gorgeous photographs, but a thoroughly investigated background for the inspirations (Art, Literature, Architecture, etc.) behind the pictured scenes.

  • True, the photographs in this book are great, and the collections of beaded, mesh, etc, purses that are shown are exquisite examples, however the text reads like a first draft. Grammatical ambiguities and lack of correct punctuation frequently render the author's sentences unintelligible. Additionally, I had hoped for information that would enable me to learn about purses, but descriptions that accompanied photographs were merely descriptive i.e., colour and dimensions of purse, rather than era, manufacturer, country of origin.

  • The book is absolutely beautiful, however, I would like to have read more history on the individual bags. All In all, very well done.

  • This book shows fabulous examples of hard to find and rare purses taken from private collectors from all over. This book is the only one that gives previously undisclosed information regarding the background of the making of a purse, including rarely found information about the manufacturers.
    A MUST SEE, a must read!
