Fantastic antique beadwork over woven straw case, probably Spanish, early to mid 19th century. The piece is encircled with dancing figures in black, and with blue swags and blue and red flowers, all against a gold ground. The owner’s name is also worked onto the case: “D. Mariano Sanchez”. The letter on the top is difficult to decipher: “S.ALS.L”. Beadwork is in excellent condition; cardboard insert is a recent addition; top does not fit tightly. Measures 2 7/8” by 1 3/4”.
