Beaded Purses - Part 1

Jim Wroda conducted the auction for Keystone Convention in May 2011 in PA. The sale included 29 beaded purses from the collection of the late Marlene Funk.  We believe that it is the first such large assemblage of these items – at least within our memory. It must have required attendance over a long period of time at estate and house sales to accumulate such variety! We thought it would be a nice way of remembering Marlene; to share these examples with our viewers.

Price results for purses sold are displayed under each item.

“For behold, the day is coming, burning like an oven, and all the proud, yes, all who do wickedly will be stubble. And the day which is coming shall burn them up” says the Lord of hosts, “That will leave them neither root nor branch. But to you who fear My name the Sun of Righteousness shall arise with healing in His wings; and you shall go out and grow fat like stall-fed calves. You shall trample the wicked, for they shall be ashes under the soles of your feet on the day that I do this,” says the Lord of hosts.
“Remember the Law of Moses, My servant, which I commanded him in Horeb for all Israel, with the statutes and judgments.”
“Behold, I will send you Elijah the prophet before the coming of the great and dreadful day of the Lord. And he will turn the hearts of the fathers to the children, and the hearts of the children to their fathers, lest I come and strike the earth with a curse.”                     (Malachi 4:106)

Malachi, the concluding book of the Old Testament, has some distinctive characteristics. The Hebrew word mal-key can be translated “my messenger”, a reference to the office of the prophet, not the actual name. This book is primarily a call to repentance for the wayward people of Israel, but with a word of hope as well. The prophet assures them that the Messiah will come.
