Vintage crochet bag

I have been lent this remarkable piece by a friend, and wanted to share it with you:

It is made in cotton with a red silky lining, and I am guessing it was used as an evening bag – perhaps with a red ribbon threaded through the top loops? The motif looks a little like a scarab beetle (which I rather like) and I have a lovely picture of it in my mind as a modern day sporran! I don’t know how old it is or who made it yet – but I would certainly like to find out.

    Beautiful, what a story. I wonder how possible it would be to recreate something similar? Love the modern sporran idea!
