VICTORIAN Religious Bookmark - Burgundy Silk, Embroidery & Image of Madonna and Child
Welcome to ROBINS NEST MIDWEST! May I offer….
AGE: C.1890 or so
ITEM: From France, here's a burgundy silk book mark that is hand embroidered (fall colors) and has, as its focal point, a black and white image of the Madonna and Child (feels like photograph paper). Possibly a souvenir found in one of the Cathedrals in Paris - possibly a handmade item from a daughter to her Papa.
CONDITION: What you see is what you get. Darker upper and bottom sections where the fringe has been made; maybe a touch of fringe missing in some places due to old age.
SIZE: Length of the piece is about 8-3/4"; width is 2-3/16"/
FINAL COMMENTS: A rare religious find!
