This vintage piece is a little larger than what I normally have in mind for a pincushion, but the slight freakishness of it compelled me to make something. I decided to enhance the floral aspect, and let the cherub speak for itself. The colors of the piece are rich, for being so softly applied, and perfectly add to the sculpt itself. This little angel imp brings a cupful of poppy-laced dreams to soothe the savage thirst.
The pincushion is about 6 inches tall and 4.5 inches wide at its extreme points. This is a vintage ceramic piece and is in excellent condition. There are slight roughness or nubs at various places, but that is a natural effect of the manufacturing process for this unglazed piece. The pincushion is handknit, with crocheted trims around the edge. The pincushion comes with the 5 pins that are shown.
