You are looking at a great looking Victorian era lingerie bag/hanky holder. As you can see, it's done in gorgeous deep olive green velvet. It is highlighted in the center with hand sewn white silk daisies, with antique gold chenille leaves/stems. Five of the daisies have hand-stitched centers.
There is braiding along all the edges, done in peach silk threads along with gold metallic threads.
The inside is done in faded peach silk, which has fraying along most of the edges.
The back of the lingerie bag is a brighter shade of green velvet.
The overall condition is good to very good. The braided trim shows only minor wear; the front white silk flowers have a few missing and/or loose petals, but it's rather minor. There is very minor wear to the velvet here & there, but it's mainly along the front edges. There may be a small dark spot on the upper right side; I'm not sure if it's that or possibly the nap of the velvet. All other imperfections have been noted in the description.
I have shown this with and without a small pillow insert. I personally feel this would make a stunning pillow. Just add a small pillow or "stuffing" and stitch up the sides & front. Or, how about stitching up the sides and using it as a tea cozy?
The dimensions folded are: 16 ½" X 10".
This is so much nicer in person than what my pictures show. Again, a great piece to use as a tea cozy or pillow.
