Lovely Antique Bag With Boteh Design. Cut Steel Beads. Victorian? For Sale
Lovely antique bag with boteh design. Cut steel beads. Victorian?

English speakers only please.
Welcome to the Accessories Department of Poppies Cottage, where you will find all manner of beautiful fancies to decorate your ensemble!
This antique bag looks Victorian but I couldn't give it a closer date.
Made with a drawstring top, but now missing the drawstring, it either needs work to improve or would be a lovely addition to a display.
The rounded shape, which I think has a silk knitted ground, has beautiful botehs worked all around it. These are edged in and highlighted with cut steel beads. Then there are additional accents in russet colours, all on a pale sand base.
Below the botehs, we have very heavily applied cut steel beading, throughout the base.
All of this main body of the bag, and base are in excellent condition, I cannot see any bead loss at all.
Then we come to the band at the top opening, all beaded, but with lines of losses. Someone seems to have stabalized these by threading the bead ends back into the good part, but I have not messed with it in case I spoil it!
The loops are in the most worn condtion, with one loop needing to be stitched back at one end, and all having lost beads to varying degrees.
The bag is unlined, I suspect the lining having been removed. This is quite nice, because I can show you the work from the inside!
The bag measures 6" deep [without loops] and approx 9" wide all around.
Discolouration is very minor.
Please do take a look in my shop if you have the time!
