This is a C1900 or prior Ladies Sewing Roll Up For her Embroidery and Lace Yarns. It was hand stitched and hand embroidered using red challis and brown and white windowpane check wool. The embroidery and stitching on it is impeccable. There is some linen yarn still tucked in the pockets. The long thin pockets would have been used to store embroidery floss. Each side of the roll up has a large pocket. Needles in small packets may have gone in the smaller pockets. There are some small sections with moth holes. When opened up, it measures 16 1/2 inch by 9 inches, and then can folded or rolled up.
