This is a small and precious pincushion. Lilac-tinted rose bouquets adorn each side of the ceramic part. Built-in to whatever this is (a tealight holder?) was a vertical opening, so I filled that with the crocheted flower and leaves - the fecundity just oozes from within.
The pincushion is about 2.5 inches tall and 2 inches wide. The cushion itself is handknit in a lovely sueded cotton with a loden green/chartreuse crocheted accent trim encircling it. The vintage candleholder (?) is in good shape, with no damage to the original ceramic, and virtually no wearing on the giltwork. There is a consistent crackle in the glaze all around the piece. The pincushion comes with the 4 pins that are shown.
