Large bag made out of an Antique Dharaniyo from Gujarat
The mirrors used include the diamond-shape cut which is rare! This type of cut more or less disappeared a few decades ago.
The embroidery is estimated to be a few decades old and has signs of wear but the style of the embroidery is so clearly old that the overall impact is powerful.
The bag itself has been made recently.
Please note that the embroidery is a few decades old and there are signs of wear and tear. Threads have frayed & mirrors are missing.
Nevertheless the impact is stunning.
The size of the main storage area excluding the handle is 24 inches x 20 inches x 5 inches.
This item has spent a lifetime being used for the purpose of its creation with the original artist/user. Signs of this life lived heartily may be present on the piece in the form of stains, thread loss, loose threads, holes, tears, color run and other imperfections. Therefore the condition must be assumed to be “not” perfect. More photos of such imperfections will be provided on request.
