Evelyn Haertig Books and Purses
Restoring and Collecting Antique Beaded Purses
So many collectors requested additional information regarding restoring antique beaded purses during Evelyn’s restoration workshops and museum lectures, that she wrote her third and final book, Restoring and Collecting Antique Beaded Purses.
As the title suggests, this book is primarily concerned with restoration techniques in addition to solid suggestions for assembling a collection which will appreciate in value over the years. This is not a how-to, step-by-step book, but it is filled with practical tips for restoring old, damaged purses. Following these tips along with practice and experience will take you toward good restoration.
