Antique Carved Madras Work Needle Book

English * Circa 1820

This antique needle book is engraved with patterns of Madras work dots and circles on both sides. This is a form of scrimshaw work where black lacquer is flowed into the engraved designs and this one has especially delicate designs. It has a lovely mellow patina and grain pattern. It opens like a book and inside are little pages of finely woven wool to hold the needles. They have been embroidered around the edges with silk buttonhole stitches. Matching yellow silk ribbons trim the back spine and tie in a bow to hold the book closed.

The condition is excellent with no chips or loss. It measures 3 3/8" by 1 3/4" closed (not counting the ribbons). The silk ribbons & trim and the needle pages are all original. It's English and dates to the early 19th century. A variety of Madras work needlework tools in this material are shown on p. 87 of Nerylla Taunton's book Antique Needlework Tools.If you have any questions about this item, please email me at cmmeacham on AOL.
