Re: [CGWcostumers] Vintage Evening Bags
- Look on the inside of the frame. You may find a makers mark. My mesh reticule is sterling & made by Whiting & Davis. The exterior is marked "Vera". This will help in your search.As for beaded ones, if you can figure out how to upload a pic to the yahoogroup photos folder we'd be both delighted to see it & give ideas, tho I'm so not an expert.--cinCynthia BarnesOn Mar 2, 2013 6:34 PM, "Eileen" <smolenskie@...> wrote:
Does anyone know anything about Vintage Evening Bags, or know where I can go to get information? I have in my possession two interesting ones and would love information about them. The first, possibly as old as Edwardian, is a silver metal one. It looks as if it has been knitted, all of the links are inter-locked. The second, is made of black fabric, (possibly a velveteen)and the center design is made up of small metal rings that have been covered in fine crochet stitches.
Since I can't figure out how to attach pictures of these two evening bags, if anyone e-mails be directly I will get you copies.
