This is just a most delicious little item.
Dating from the 18thC.
This miniature Huswif made from the most gorgeous silk embroidered with tiny flowers.
There are 4 pockets in the huswif, each contains a little piece of embroidery or miniature patchwork piece.
There are little pins in the top.
Of course the huswif would be rolled up and tied with the ribbon when not in use, I am not attempting to do this as the ribbon is delicate.
The overall condition is good although at the front, shows more age and fading at the back.
Measures 6" long not including the ribbon.
It came with this little hand made tambour frame with a little sampler inside, measures 2" diameter.
