Art Antiques Michigan
I have been an avid collector of country, primitive antiques for about 50 years. During those years I have collected, sold, collected, sold---you know how that goes. I was a single owner antique shop for many years. With the onset of the internet my selling venue has changed. I now have a website www.artantiquesmichigan.com. Some of you may know me from there.

I will update my Dig site every month between the 15th. and 17th. of each month. You will find fresh to market items at that time. My preferred method of payment is by check. Made payable to Joanne Getz. I offer a lay a way plan to help you with your purchases. Michigan residents add 6% Sales Tax. I do hope you will stop by often.

A very nice, ladies Pocket, circa late 19th. century. This pocket is made of linen and used both tredle and hand stitching in the construction. Very well made, the linen has some weight to it. Beautifully reinforced around the opening where there would be much pulling and stress. The inside of the pocket has a little cloth divider or perhaps it was meant to be a lining for support so it wouldn’t wear as quickly. There are some stains but no real damage. I believe the strings are original. The pocket measures 14 3/4 inches long and 11 1/2 inches wide at the widest point.
