On the left is a lovely, small huswif. Fabrics making up the six pockets are in excellent condition and date as early as 1840. Fabric on the outside shows a tiny bit of wear. Measurements are 2 1/2" x 10". On the right is the most unusual huswif I've seen. I don't know of another with round pockets. The fabrics on the front are in perfect condition. The outside is made like a penny rug, again a feature I have never seen. There is a little bit of wear to the tan circles. The outside is made of wools. Measurements are 2" x 10 1/2". Priced individually. Huswif on right is sold.
