After I read Veros article about Hornbooks http://verom.over-blog.com/article-1415582.html I pulled out this little item we have since always in our home.
I always saw that there is something to put a sheet of paper in, but I didn´t know how and why this little silver thing was used in the past. Now I think I know, this is something like a Hornbook!
I think I´ll stitch something for it. Now I have to look for a Hornbook design which is about 5 x 7cm.
