This is a fine example of the work done at home by ladies long ago! Not only is the hand embroidery perfect, right down to the beautifully scalloped button hole stitched flap, but the french seams are stitched by hand...not machine! Notice the details like the tiny laundry mark in black and white twisted thread,just above the row of drawn hem stitching as shown in last photos. Absolutely perfect work of art! There are faint little stains seen on the top fold, left and right. These will fade with future laundering. Measures 9 1/2" X 6" folded closed.
