Beaded Linen and Silk Reticule, "Hannah Haws's work 1837," the reticule composed of very small glass beads sewn onto linen, beaded with hearts, birds, and geometric designs on one side, and hearts, a potted plant, and birds on the reverse, vestiges of silk lining, 7 1/4 x 7 3/4 in.
The beadwork is sound, none missing or loose. The silk lining and covering the drawstring area is mostly gone.
