A very fine example
of raised whitework worked on an almost transparent linen cloth. The design is a
half circle on an unfinished piece of cloth. I think the work was intended to be
a small collar, probably for a child, which was never finished, cut out or
attached to a dress. The flowers have a wonderful three dimensional effect with
each petal stitched individually.
The button box
is a Victorian box which contained a large quantity (ten dozen - or 120)
of cloth buttons of the type shown in the image.
