Vintage Jane Eyre Book from 1886

Jane Eyre from 1886

embroidered box "This is a beauty from the The Minneapolis Institute of Arts. Silk, metallic threads on white satin, decorated with seed pearls, wood, metal, 1662. Beautiful example of English raised work embroidery. This one depicts the story of Queen Esther in the Old Testament, whose intelligence and diplomacy saved her people from persecution. I want to know exactly how the embroidered fabric was fastened or glued onto the wood pieces. Rabbit skin glue?" Medieval Illumination
