Guest Book

A very nice antique love token velvet book box with a cutout applied to the cover, hand holding a book and the sentiment, "With my love". Inside the book box is a fold out in tartan paper meant to hold needles and pins. On the inside cover is a little paper print of a village, water and people glued in and varnished over to make it look like a real painting. The whole effect is very nice. The book box is 3" by 2 1/4" by 1" deep. The black velvet velvet has wear but doesn't really show and the interior has been used and shows it but overall it is what you would expect from a little gift sewing accessory that was cherished and used.
