Here is a beautiful original hand sewn Victorian circa mid-19th Century Hussif sewing kit/purse. It is made of luxuriously rich deep burgundy velvet with a beautiful heavily hand beaded design which looks like stylised trees and flowers on the flap closure. There is a beaded design on both ends. Inside is lined with a delicate blue silk with a natural cotton piece sewn on the underside of the flap which is embroidered with the a pretty flower in green, pink and orange thread which would have been used for needles. It closes with a button/loop which has a beaded tassle.
There are some light stains to the blue silk lining and to the needle fabric. There is velvet loss in certain areas - please see the photos for detail.
