Here is another example of one of the sewing items made as a gift for a friend during the Victorian era. This silk sewing bag comes from Massachusetts and has a provenance note: “Sewing bag Ada Cook made by Dorothy Kaffenberger.”
The bag measures 6 ½” x 10 ½”. It is made from a red, blue, green, and white plaid silk carefully hand stitched into three pockets that can lay open or be gathered together with a maroon ribbon that is threaded through a channel at the top of the bag.
The bag is in very good condition with but a few hard-to-see water stains on one of the outside pockets. Please examine the photos and don’t hesitate to contact me if you have any questions.
