19th C Bead Work -- Pen Rest?
This little make-do beadwork piece is a mystery to me in two ways in function and design. My guess is that its a pen rest and that the pen nib was intended to sit in the fluted white fixture at one end. The design on one side is a spaniel, but the design looks extremely odd perhaps a bagpipe? At any rate, its a great little piece in good condition small losses to spaniel, edges and corners. Measures 2 3/8 by 2.
