Physical Description

An unusual box shaped object with open ends. Worked in crazy patchwork with some beading in soft browns and reds. Letter "M" on side and "B" on front. Dated 1886. There is a triangular tab which suggests that it was intended to hang, but its purpose is unknown. Perhaps it was meant as a cover.
