This lovely knitted bag with beaded design probably dates to the 1920s. The shimmery beading resembles stylized peacock plumes, perhaps an Art Deco reinterpretation of the ever-popular feather. Beading creates loops for the drawstring handle. It is lined with green satin and may have been owned by Julia McIver Logan (1885-1923) of Charleston.
 TEXTILE TUESDAYS: Each Tuesday we post a piece from the Charleston Museum’s textile collection.  Some items have been on exhibit, some will eventually be shown in our Historic Textiles Gallery and some may be just too fragile to display. We hope you enjoy our selection each week – do let us know if there’s something in particular you’d like to see on TEXTILE TUESDAY! #TextileTuesday
