This is the most fashionable collection in the Gallery, begun by the women of the Beggiato family. The owner, Elisabeth Beggiato, has preserved bags inherited from the Austrian branch of the family.
Evening or cocktail bags, all made with glass beads, from smaller Venetian bags to larger bags from Bohemia. The collection includes items from the end of the 1800s to the 1960s.
The collection is so rich and original that it caught the attention of the editor of “Antiquariato” magazine which featured it with words and photographs on its pages
