    Ava Gardner Owned Beaded Evening Bag and Floral Scarf. Millions of tiny beads cover every inch of this unique Magid bag. The intricate, hand-beaded floral design is different from front to back, and every single seed bead is intact. With a beaded tubular handle, and a gold-toned rhinestone kiss clasp (missing one of the rhinestones), the intricately designed purse is 8" at its widest point and 6.5" high. The exterior is in Very Fine condition, as is the interior, which is lined in ivory satin with one interior pocket. Also included in the lot is a vintage Emilia Bellini scarf with a stylized floral design and hand-rolled edges. Measuring 34" x 34", the scarf is in Very Fine to Excellent condition with only very minor signs of wear. From the Ava Gardner Estate.
