Bag with appliqued FOR A DEAR GIRL; Circa 1860

This is a completely charming, well made, unique bag. In addition to the finely done lettering, a heart; spades and an hourglass shape are appliqued on the front. The back is done with appliqued baskets, leaves and flowers. Extraordinarily fine cross stitches fasten the appliques. It is in excellent condition; probably New England origin. Measurements are 9" wide and 12" tall.This was probably the work of a very loving mother.
