Strawberry Pen Wipe

Pen wipes were common desk items in vintage times when dip and fountain pens were used. Fashioned with a decoration the base was used to blot the pen before writing. They were often given as gifts. I'm offering a strawberry pen wipe. All made from hand dyed wools. The base is made of three layers of wool shaped like a leaf and stitched together by hand. Sitting on top the green leaves is a red strawberry with green cap and stem with hand stitched black "seeds" in an "x" pattern all over. The berry is stuffed with wool. The leaves measure about 6 x 4". The berry is about 3" long, not including the stem. I'm kindly asking $35.00 which includes shipping.
