Needlepoint bag with petit point birds, c.1920. What joy and gaiety in the brilliant design with two mythological birds—different on front and back! The design was worked in fine wool petit point. The bag is hung from a gold tone metal frame and is lined with aqua silk. Inside are two pockets with a matching change purse and silk backed mirror. The bag closes with a jeweled cloisonné clasp and has a linked chain handle. Vintage Textile.
