Very old (probably 1800s vintage, I think) Mason's apron, 15 1/2" long x 14 1/2" wide, embroidered silk and leather with a very fine wire-like passementerie boullion fringe.
This is very old, shabby from time more than use. The fringe is a bit broken in areas and very dark with tarnish. The soft leather is rubbed and thin, and the the silk is shattering from age. It's a little discolored, too.
