Charming vintage silk pincushion with the “Hands Around the World” design. Sweet hand painted child at center playing with a toy. Cherry Blossom branch at each side. Ball at center measures approximately 2” in diameter. Outer width at the widest portion (head to head) is approximately 2 3/4”. Stands at 1 7/8” off the table. Unmarked.
Overall condition of this piece is Very Good. There are some pin holes in the top silk, primarily through the paint on the child. You can see there is some loss of paint especially in the area of the yellow pants. Please study my photos and ask any questions you may have. I will do my best to answer them promptly.
Because this is an estate item, it was previously owned and is not new. This piece is being sold as is, with all sales final.
