This little antique handmade prayer book is nicely sized for a dollhouse or to display with other small dolls. I think it would look great with one of the artisan made English wooden style dolls on the market now - especially a small-scale one.
The tiny book has a silk cover that is embroidered in gold bullion on both front and back. It closes with a tiny gold loop and bead for a clasp. There is a white silk ribbon inserted into one of the covers, making it easy to pin to a costume or at a waistband. Inside, there is some Latin text printed on tissue paper that is bound into the covers and unfolds to be read. The title page is in Spanish. I bought this item in Spain, so I presume that it is Spanish in origin - likely early 20th century in age. One of the folds of the tissue is slit, but nothing terrible. Otherwise, the little book is in great condition, and has likely been in storage since it was made.
The book measures 7/8 x 5/8" (2 x 1.3 cm).
