1950s Quilted Black Lingerie / Nightdress Case with Embroidered Roses
Beautiful vintage black quilted lingerie/nightdress case from the 1950s. This pretty case has been embroidered in silk thread with a large rose on the front and two smaller roses on the inside of the flap closure, so you can use it as an open or closed bag. The roses are pastel mustard yellow and orange roses. The large rose on the outside has green leaves too. The inside of the case is quilted in a mustard yellow color.

In clean condition with no musty smells, just a couple of very slight marks on the inside of the flap and one white mark on the back, externally. Please see photos.

Vintage Whitework Embroidery Linen Handkerchief Case
A beautiful vintage linen handkerchief case with hand embroidered whitework. Made in the 1950s this pure white, crisp, strong linen case, has a pretty front flap that covers the complete width of the case. It has a scalloped and embroidered edge, with embroidered clovers displayed along the edges. There are three letters initialled in one corner.

It was probably made for use to keep hankies in, but could equally be used for as storage for gloves, lace or any other delicate items.

There is a small stain above the initials, and a small rust mark on the inside of the front flap, which I have shown in the photos, but it is otherwise in superb, freshly laundered condition and measures approx. 13” x 8 1/2”

Size: approx. 14 1/2 inches x 6 inches.
