Embroidered Envelope or Sack

Vintage elegant pouch

A most elegant pouch to store the prettiest of nightgowns, but due to its grand size this lovely piece could also double as a marvelous pillow sham. Loomed of a very tightly woven and exceptionally fine "fil de lin" linen, it is meticulously embroidered with garlands of flowers and butterflies in bourdon, tige and post point. The embroidery is of a rare finesse and the center of the piece has a charming inset oval in Milan lace representing a young girl feeding a goose from her bread basket. Each coner has an inset triangle of ribbon lace and the entire piece is edged in a very pretty bobbin lace. This pouch or envelope is open at the sides and fastens at the bottom with two mother-of-pearl buttons. The condition is immaculate and it's just as pretty as can be! Dimensions: 28.5 x 16in.
