Oh, those one-of-a-kind treasures found once in a while.  This silk bookmark is just one such item.  Made in the year 1889 for Mr. & Mrs. J. L. Nessle, the book mark features a young girl stirring a pot of, maybe porridge.  The under ribbon is a blue silk satin with the date and name of receiver printed upon it.  Affixed to the satin is a shorter silk ribbon.  The little girl is hand painted on the shorter piece. 

Size of this creative bookmark is 6-3/4" long x 2-1/4" wide.

Condition:  Ends of ribbon are worn.  Remarkable it even survived 127 years.
