Another vintage crochet bag

This is the second bag in my friend’s collection, and if anything it is even more magnificent:

Made in black mercerised cotton, with a central raised flower motif, and some rather fetching crocheted ‘acorns’ dangling from strategic points. This one has a drawstring and is very clearly an evening bag. I marvel at the workmanship shown in this little piece, not to mention the time that must have been invested in making it.
