Vintage and Antique Linens by Em's Heart

Antique Embroidered Red Velvet

Letter Box

Item Number C29807

Fabulous antique embroidered German letter box is covered in red velvet and beautifully embroidered with real gold floss, "lose blätter" which translates "drawing sheets".  The latch appears to work but is not set to the locking position.  A satin ribbon on the inside aids in lifting a stack of sheets from the box....soooo charming!  The work is crisp and classically early Victorian in the same vein as those lavishly embroidered and pieced "Crazy Quilts" of the same period.  Minor wear to the velvet on the corners does not detract from the beauty or usefulness of the piece.  Offered in excellent condition as found.  c.1870's - 80's  6" X 8.75" X 1.75"
