Antique Georgian Micro Beadwork Beaded Miniature Book Cover - Cherubs - Early:
A rare antique, first quarter of the 18th century micro beaded miniature silk book cover, possibly for notes or needles, with a design of cherubs, grapes and vines. This delightful, early Georgian period piece is probably French. It is lined with silk and has a knitted silk ribbon marker.
It is in good condition for its age with some beads missing and wear round the edges (see photos). It measures 3.5 by 2.1 inches (9 by 5.5 cm.)
The photos can be enlarged for more detail and to assess the condition.
