One of a pair of fifth rank military officer's bear squares. Rather coarse satin stitch on blue-black satin; bear (of same general type as that on No. 83, but having less well-shaped head) has couched gold man and tail (like No. 64). Couched border in Greek fret. Identical in pattern with 52-23-64, and almost the same as 52-23-87.
Purchased from J. S. Letcher
