Ring Holder

This open pocket is intended to be hung on the toilet glass — rather a novelty in its way. The cardboard shape is covered with peacock blue plush, on which a branch of eglantine is embroidered in floss silks. The flowers and buds are in shaded pinks, the stems green, and the French knots in gold color. The small, white flowers are slightly shaded with yellow, and the foliage is variegated. All the edges are covered with a fine cord, and a small gilt ring is fastened on the back by which it can be suspended. The design given is half size.
