bag (bag)


This bag is made of white silk satin and is decorated with applied green beetle wings. During the later part of the 19th century, there was a fashion for trimmings and detailing from nature. Real beetle wings, and sometimes the whole beetle, were used as decoration on bags.

This object is on display at RAMM in the Finders Keepers gallery.
