Couldn’t be more elegant and beautiful. This is one of the best of the best from the 1940’s or 1950’s. Made in Japan, all by hand – of course. This style is more unusual than the typical rectangular shape and it may be a bit older than many. Of course, I had to have it for my collection.
The craftsmanship and lovely design out-do anything similar that’s been made recently. These bags are always quite heavy for their size, which testifies to the number of glass beads used. And the fact that they are all sewn by hand adds an extra level of quality. That so many have lasted for all these decades without falling apart tells the story . . . . . . .
