Code: DIG032130


W: 41cm (16.1")H: 42cm (16.5")


A large late 19th century work/knitting bag.

Lovely dark green velvet with the front inset with floral fabric.

Gold metal fringing.

Inside is lined in wonderful green silk with two inside pockets and the gold stamp of JC Vickery.  I know Vickery made bags but as I can't find any others like this I have to assume that this may have been a special order for a good customer.  The silk lining fits the bag perfectly.

Interestingly I did originally have two, the other was blue.

Lovely condition.

Shoulder straps measure 68 cm
