Cultural Narrative: 

This object is made as a decorative item and is considered contemporary. The things I consider contemporary are after 1855 because of the commercial dyes and stuff. It was meant to sit on a little shelf. Maybe somebody was teaching this person, starting out small. It does have several loops on the top that kind of flow out. Vivian Adams
