DX0928 Shasavan Scissors Bag 3.5" x 19"
$3,500

Antique Caucasian Scissors or Spoon Bag

DX0928 Shasavan . Rare does not accurately describe this piece, only a handful are know from auction results. As with all trappings, this was woven as part of a woman’s dowry and surely would worn out based on use. So much work and intricate detail in such a small package.  Treasured by collectors for obvious reasons but mostly the non commercial aspect of not being made to be sold. 3.5″ x 19″. Circa 1850. $3,500LOGO_FOR TEXT
