Antique Deco Flapper String Bag Egyptian Revival Motif
Our second string bag from the Roaring 20s - worked in a more subtle color scheme of soft purple, fern green and black on taupe - has a pouch big enough to hold a lot. It measures 9" x 6 1/2", and the strap is about 39" long. On close inspection, the strap could use a few stitches for reinforcement; there's one frayed spot at the top, easily repaired. The purse has no further problems I notice and, like our other string bag from the same Dallas area estate, shows its original colors because of being carefully stored away for decades. These two bags are truly exceptional finds - superstars of a type that's rare to begin with.
