I do travel a lot, so kindly allow for possible delays in my responses or mailings.

This neat antique pin cushion came from a local collector. He told me it was Iroquois, but I believe it may from a Midwestern tribe instead. The pincushion is dated 1906 on the underside of the tail. It is filled with sawdust and decorated with white glass beads. This is a larger bird with nice beading. Measurements are 8 inches long, 5 inches tall and 3 3/4 inches wide excluding the perch and balls. The condition is good for the main body. The eggs are old and very fragile.
The eggs are all in poor condition from have pins stuck in them over the years. It does not look like the birds body was used as the pin cushion. I will send you this as you see it but expect sawdust in the package from the eggs. The main body is in nice antique condition. I do not see any missing beads. You are buying this as you see it. It is a rare and lovely item, made with great care. Add this to your sewing or Native American Indian collection today.
