This is a treasure that needs a loving restoration or, upcycling into something even more wonderful! There are no holes, no tears, everything is there! There are some stains.

Beautiful crewel work, embroidered roses and a butterfly. The stitching appears to me to also be in silk. The handles are bone. The drawstring cord feels like silk and looks like a very well done hand-plied piece. I have a feeling that this might have been a class sewing project....

Size: The hard, silk-covered bottom of the bag measures approximately 7-5/8" x 3-5/8". The bottom is basically an oval. The bag is about 6-1/2" deep. The bone (not ivory, bone...) handles measure about 2-3/8" x 5/8".

All measurements are approximate.

Condition: There are stains! Around the bottom, on the bottom and at the top. There are no holes, no tears, no rips, nothing is missing. Restoration is a much needed cleaning (I am not the person to do this, I do not want to ruin it for someone - this could be, once again, a lovely bag).

This bag may also be good for upcycling into something else. The embroidery is beautiful!

Markings: No markings. This drawstring pouch is handmade.

Circa: 1900-1910

This bag might be saved! It is a beautiful bag that has a stain, likely a perfume stain... It is may also be ready for upcycling into something new and wonderful.
