I simply cannot tell you the last time I found one of these in such great condition.  I was very thrilled to be able to purchase it.

Measuring 4 inches long by 3 inches wide about 2 inches deep, it is firmly stuffed with sawdust.  Hand sewn, it is in excellent condition with but a few pinholes.  The theorem painting is nice and bright but has taken on a nice patina that only age and use can bring. The velvet still retains about 99% of its nap.  The wool felt leave have been attached with glue.

The excellent condition of this piece tells me that was a piece that was cherished and well cared for.  It came out of a local estate in Northampton County, PA.

This is a definitely a “keeper”…if I were still collecting.  As it is, it is paining me to part with it but, alas, I must.
