Handmade Crocheted 1940s Drawstring Bag

Crocheted Drawstring Bag. 1940s. Maker: Handmade. Wonderful crocheted navy blue purse—box at the bottom and soft and collapsible at the top, with a drawstring. The material is a heavy blue cording that is crocheted (please forgive if I am wrong about the type of needlework) and wraps around the entire bag, including the bottom. Inside, to shape the bottom, is cardboard covered in satiny fabric. One interior pocket. Decorated outside with silver thread and sewn on navy blue beads. Closes with navy blue cords tipped in ornate silvertone findings.

This is a beautiful, really nicely done bag. I know I have a similar one around here somewhere…

Ha! Took some digging, but I found it!
