This is a nice old shabby Victorian pincushion form in the shape of a shoe. It's made of heavy metal with an attractive copper colored finish, quite heavy and substantial. It dates to c. 1890-1900. Nice little molded details of a raised tongue, pretty curved heels. This has a worn, shabby green velvet pincushion It has plenty of potential for assemblage art, or to be enjoyed as a shabby pincushion.
This measures 4" long and is 2" high. Quite heavy at 100 grams.
The condition is good but shabby with plenty of patina.
I ship via Canada Post, usually using their reasonably priced Small Packet service. Note that this shipping method DOES NOT include insurance or tracking.

I ship twice during the week, almost always on Tuesdays and Fridays. There is no shipping pickup available here on Saturday or Sunday.
