Beautifully Beaded Masonic Pouch

This beautifully hand-made beaded Masonic Pouch is lined with leather and bears the symbolism of Blue Lodge Masonry.  During the 19th century women made these pouches for the men to carry their Masonic aprons in.  They folded their aprons in quarters to fit in the pouch.  It measures 9 inches wide by 6 1/2 inches tall and is circa 1890.
