#15989 - Civil War era
This is a lovely French floral soft-cotton roll-up "housewife" organizer from the Civil War. Carried when traveling, it allowed buttons, threads, and needles to be held inside its roll. Things did not fall out or get lost. The end straps were wrapped and tied to keep it rolled. Many women sent a "housewife" with their soldier husbands to war. This is hand-sewn. Has two silk ties still. Lovely pattern to fine material still. Four inside pockets. About 20" long when unrolled. 4 1/2" wide. Super nice for a museum type display.
