An intricate and exquisite zardozi bag, hand made in India and acquired by the previous owner circa 1930.
Black cotton velvet is enhanced with a detailed stitching of pale gold thread, yellow gold, and amber thread.
The design is of 3 flower faces.
The rope handle is a mixture of pale gold and amber thread and there is a strap to the back to hold the bag flat to the hand or around the wrist. The gap of the strap is very small and fits 2 fingers.
This is a vintage item in very good condition with minimal thread loss and the colour of the threads remain vibrant.
