This is a lovely and precious little sewing kit from the mid 1800s. It is in remarkably good condition considering its age.
It is made like a tiny book, the outside appears to be a red leather bound in cloth and velvet. The front cover reads Present from E.G.O. 1858 done in black thread. The back cover features a petit point tiny house and foliage done in many colors. Some of the stitching has worn away but most of the design is still visible.
The inside of the kit is lined with a brocade fabric. The back portion of the book is padded to accommodate needles and pins. Attached to the inside are "pages" made of fabric and trimmed and bound with tiny scalloped stitches. There are lots of pins and needles throughout. There is also what appears to be a swatch of brown paper with tree like embroidery on it, perhaps a practice piece.
Measures 2 1/2" X 2 3/4" and is about 1/4" thick.
A beautiful and personal little relic form the Victorian era.
