Item details

Antique pin cushion, in shape of a star. Handmade in France dating around 1900. Made from 6 segments of velvet in black, olive green and red, with cord edging, the reverse is made from red and sand mattress ticking. The pincushion is stuffed with sand, nice and firm and ideal for cleaning off pins - there are still some old pins pushed in.

size: 4.5 x 4.5 inches or 11.5 cms x 11.5 cms appx
condition: good considering it is probably around 120 years old. With some fading and wear on the velvet, in particular the red. A few of the pins are rusty.

A great antique item to add to a collection of old sewing memories - there are many collectors in France, and old antique items like this are becoming rarer to find.

This will go direct from France 100g insurance and tracking not available on this Laposte service but proof of postage ALWAYS obtained

Thank you for your time!
