An extraordinary antique folder in excellent condition! The solid cardboard body is covered with cream and soft green silk moire, the front completely hand embroidered with a typical end 19th century flower basket, in silk thread and sequins. This came from a Paris fashion house where it was probably destinated to collect orders and special notes. Since it has been the highlight of the embroidery section of a small museum and now it is available for your gift list. Apparently unused it ha been well conserved without any wear or loss, quite clean and could be said'in as new condition if not for a tiny storage mark on the back and the central string to reattach at the bottom end.

It measures 14 3/4" x 10 1/2" closed This is a fantastic addition to any ladies writing desk or boudoir table as it is strong enough to be used! Please be aware that whatever I'm listing, (mostly fabric, materials, costume pieces, lace and accessoires to repair) it can sometimes be in good condition but it is NEVER NEW from a shop shelf!!!! (so signs of a former life are often noticeable unless they are described clearly as VGC or AS NEW).
