1930s/40s WoolWork Purse/Jewel Case

Product ID: T172

This is a wonderful authentic 1930s/40s hand made case, worked in wool and lined with a graphic patterned fine cotton.

Entirely handworked, it was probably a purse or jewel case.

To the inside there is a small pocket, finished with a lovely neat blanket stitching, while the outside is decorated with a floral motif and finished with a press stud closure. It is in very good condition for its age with just a few stitches of woolwork missing to the back (please see photos for details).

8 inches by 4.5 inches approximately.

This is the first we have ever come across, in decades of searching out lovely antique and vintage items! The perfect place for safekeeping keepsakes, jewellery or to use as a lovely, individual purse.
