This quite charming vintage drawstring linen evening bag has been wonderfully embroidered in an almost stump work like stitch. The linen is a plum colour (s very difficult colour to photograph accurately). The embroidery is an ecru colour.
On one side, there are two animals on either side of what appears to be a well. These animals, with their raised front legs, a mane that seems to be windswept and upturned tails, could be horses, lamas or mythical animals. I have tried to discover what these creatures are, or the origin of the bag, but I have not found any clues on either score.
But the embroidery is both wonderful, charming, and in excellent condition.
On the other side of the bag, there is a floral design.
Four balled fringes are place decoratively at the bottom of the bag.
There are other embroidered design, viewable from my photos.
A double handled drawstring in a rope motif is the final aspect of this delightful bag.
I do not know its age but I do know it must be at least 50 years old, if not the 1920’s.
The condition is pristine.
It measures 12 inches by 8 ½ inches. The double drawstrings are 4 ½ inches long.
