This sand coloured bag is made of a linen like material. It is hand sewn with tiny even stitches. It is hand embroidered with the word chemisettes in blue. One corner is torn but the rest is still strong. There are three small holes. This bag was owned by Mrs. Geoffrey Downton. This is a superb example of the art of hand sewing.
Gimse, Marjory (Mrs. Gunnar) (nee Downton)
