Antique Porcelain Doll Pincushion From Germany, Early 1900’s Unique 2 Porcelain Piece Doll, Tomato Skirt Cushion & Emery Powder Strawberry
This lovely lady is very turn of the century. Not only is she in fine Victorian fashion but her pin cushion is a tomato. Stuffed tomatoes became popular in the 1900’s for new homeowners to put on their mantles to attract prosperity, good health and to ward off evil spirits. Real tomatoes were first used but did not last long so it became popular to make stuffed ones. Soon they were being used for the more practical purpose of holding pins. The strawberry is filled with an abrasive emery powder that is used to clean and sharpen your needles.
She is white porcelain that is glazed and china painted. Her blouse is white and she has brown hair with a red ribbon. Her shoes are patina gold colored paint. She is in very good condition for her age with no cracks, chips or crazing. She does have some what looks like sticker residue at her waist that I have not tried to remove. She also has some soiling on the front of her back leg that I also did not try to clean. He face and hair paint are still beautifully intact though there is some missing from her shoes. Please see all photos for further details. This will come with the metal doll stand which is a modern item.
May she bring good luck, wealth and health to your home.
She measures 8” tall
