Have you ever wanted an embroidered pocket but never had the time to make one? This hand sewn linen pocket c. 1730-1780 is machine embroidered with worsted but you'd not know it from the outside since it's lined in unbleached linen. The 7" slit is hemmed in the pocket with overall dimensions of 14" deep by 11 1/2" at it's widest with some discoloration for the petina of a reused bed hanging which are found in New England. There is no linen tape for ties so it can be added for your waist measurement. A period example is included in The Proceedings of the Old Bailey in 1764 two men "were indicted, for that they, on the 24th of March , about the hour of nine at night, the dwelling house of George Rice , Esq; did break and enter, and stealing . . . the property of Anne Brown, spinster; one linen pocket, one worsted pocket".
