Description

This a decorative bag, in Victorian style, which appears to have been handmade using vintage components. Although we can't say for certain when this was made, we believe it was put together some time between 1950 and 1970. (Going by the style and what other items were with it when it was obtained.) However, some of the components look to be from the 20s or 30s, such as the beaded border. The design and execution suggests it would have been part of a vintage, or even antique, beaded dress.

The bag is soft and is lined with grey silk, with a pocket inside for a mirror (or a payment card!). The outside of the bag is decorated with glass jet embroidery beads, sequins, silver glass rocaille beads and a frill of organza. It has a diamante component which would have been a piece of jewellery, acting as a closure, which is completed on the opposite edge, by a loop of glass rocaille beads.

There are also a couple of black buttons, in pressed glass. It's possible that this is a "heritage bag" made from pieces that might have been of sentimental value to someone. Or it might just be a nice, artistic project. Whatever its history, it is certainly unique with a special look to it and it is quite useable!

The bag is about 22cms wide at the top and 25 cms wide at the bottom and about 22cms high. It is on a double black cord approximately 84cms long. The drop, hung from the shoulder, is about 59 cms.

The colour combination of black, grey and silver gives this item a Victorian "Gothic" look and would be perfect for festivals, plays, photography, weddings etc.

This is in quite good vintage condition.
