1920 Full Circle

I crocheted this sweet blue beaded crocheted rope and keep it on this antique clothes brush. This type of clothes or vanity brush was popular in the 1920's and 1930's. This one is made in Germany and is hand painted porcelain. Beaded crochet was also popular in the 1920's during the Flapper era when beaded ropes were the bee's knees. What a cute expression. Above is what she should look like in all her glory, but mine is missing her fancy ribbon. Honestly, I love the look of the low metal hip band against the softness of the colors. Yeah, she's come full circle into this century.

Things had so much character decades ago. Picture this lovely clothes brush next to one of the sticky lint rollers of today. LOL Your rope is beautiful, so many lovely colors together.
