A women friend of mine gave me this item to see what I could find out about it .About 2ft long by 11 inches wide .
The story from her was her father was in Germany during the war and brought this back .Made out of a very soft cloth.
Thank you very much Cannonballguy ,I also dug a pockett knife which looks period but I know it is hard to tell if it is Civil war period
Again thanks a bunch for your reply and Happy Holidays to you !!:icon_thumright:
