A Small Piece-Constructed Drawstring Bag: Stripes
early twentieth century
3" x 4" x 4", 7.5 cm x 10 cm x 10 cm
This little silk drawstring bag is hand stitched from about 8 pieces of old, striped silk.
The bottom is reinforced with card board; all the loops which draw the bag closed are intact; there is some damage to the bottom of the bag as can be seen in the accompanying photos.
This lovely little bag is lined in cotton and shows a strong yet unusual color palette of restrained, somber blacks, purples and silver/grey/whites.
