From the Victorian era ~ a little needle work bag attached to a velvet needlecase. Made of silk fabric with a white print design, the bag might have held a thimble, spool of thread or other small sewing tools. A gathered drawstring of red ribbon closes the bag.
The bottom of the bag is gathered stitched to a needlecase made of plush black velvet. The case, too, closes with red ribbon ties. Three cream wool leaves edged in red blanket stitch, is revealed when the case is opened. Each leaf is made in a graduated size. Lining of the inside of case is red silk.
Length of the bag/needlecase is 7-7/8" long x 3-1/2" wide.
Condition: The brown silk is somewhat shattered, although would display very well if wanting to use in a sewing collection. The velvet needlecase part has some wear along the edge of velvet. This would be just normal wear. The leaves look as if they were never used.
