Antique 18th Century Needlework Silk Bags
Measures appprox21 x 24cm - the bag on the left in the photo is crumpled but complete!
Beige silk with hand sewn lattice work of silk on top - pink on one and pale teal on the other
Both with drawstring tops with silk ribbon
Thereare labels inside from the Royal School of Art Needlework inside (see photo left).These weredonated to us by a member of the public so origins are unknown but we believethey may be student's pieces.
We believe these piecesdate to the late 18th and as such, they are in very nice condition.The beige silk appears reasonably clean with just two small holes near the top of the teal bag. The lattice on the pink bag is a bit grubby in places with age and wear. There are a few places where the lattice has come loose.These are stunning pieces of needlework - the photos don't dothem justice!
Apologies to previous buyers - we have been informed that these bags are considerably older than we first believed so we felt it important to end the sale and restart it with the correct information.
We have another needlework bag of a similar age available in another listing - win both lots and pay postage on just one.
