19th c. Embroidered - Ticking Needle / Note Case - Unfinished
A wonderful example of an embroidered ticking note or needle case. A dazzling array of stitches worked on a ground of cotton ticking fabric. Finished with an ochre-colored silk binding hand embroidered with feather stitch.
See Colleen Formby's article An 1863 Embroidered-Ticking Notecase for more details on the history of these inspired works.
