From the 1880's Victorian linen closet, a hand made, hand embroidery society silk napkin holder case. Sewn of natural linen, the case is folded in triangles, edged in maroon ribbon.  Each side is embellished with a cluster of flowers embroidered in silk thread. Ribbon bows tie the case together. 

Size is 9-1/2" square.  Probably would hold about a dozen 8" square napkins.

Condition:  It appears never to have been used.  The natural linen has taken on a soft aged patina from years of storage. Bits of the silk ribbon edging missing here and there.
