A delicious grouping for your summer folk interior. Here we have an antique Victorian french beadwork basket with loose red velvet fabric to the base. This yummy basket is then chock full of six little strawberry emeries (full of fine sand to sharpen your needles and pins). Three of the strawberries are the old 19th century Victorian beauties being crochet wool with yellow glass beadwork pips. Another is a large maroon silk crochet variety with amber glass beadwork pips. The remaining two are in our experience a little later being circa 1900 to 1920 -one is a stockinette version with wired stem and embroidered pips and one is a felt and velvet variety again with wire stem. All genuine versions not reproductions, and all are in good sound condition free from leaks. A very sweet collection of antique berries to bring a smile. We see them tempting you from afar displayed upon a blue painted shelf...perfect!!
The basket is 5.25 inch tall by 3" wide.
Condition: A very good and sound berry emery group. The French circa 1880 basket has turquoise beaded loss and wire breakage to one of the wire arched feet- see image.
