French silk embroidered lingerie case, early 1900s. This one is a fairly luxurious example of beautiful blue colored silk that has been richly embroidered and monogramed “PR”. Quilted ivory colored silk lines the interior and there are delicate ivory colored silk ribbons for fastening. The colors and embroidery are beautifully preserved and it comes in superb condition. There is very minor and negligible wear to the front in the form of a few tiny pin-sized holes present (as shown). The back corner is worn and the stitching, also in the same corner and along the latticed trim, needs resewing. One of the four silk ribbons used for fastening is missing. The interior is well preserved with light areas of discoloration in the corner, as shown.
Size: 22” x 14”.
