One of the finest & earliest examples of an American housewife. Circa 1830 roll up - 14" x 4-1/2", all hand sewn, five interior pockets, each with different calico print, each bound with various calicos, two wool needle flaps, black ties, bound in pink checked cotton and early calico print on exterior. De-accessioned from a New York state museum. (Modeled my own housewife on this one.)
