Item details

Antique primitive pinkeep/pincushion, made from an old large 1920's composition-head doll's cloth body; pinned to it is a smaller vintage doll body pinkeep that is a pocket-sized, removable piece that you can take with you from project to project, leaving the larger body on your sewing table; both pieces have some old pins and needles stuck in them, plus a needle threader; it sits fairly well, best propped up against a wall while on a shelf or table; you can see by the tape measure photos that it is a good-sized piece
Neither body has limbs or a head-- just the cloth torsos, with the limbs and neck openings sewn shut on the larger body and tied closed on the little one; both bodies show their age: darkening of the fabric, age spots, etc., but no rips or tears; the antique body has a very faint "age" odor, as these old cloth doll bodies often do from years of storage, but nothing strong; some of the pins stuck in it look bent and/or rusted a bit, adding to the primitive, antique look
A one-of-a-kind, make-do pincushion that would be handy in your sewing or craft room and you could use it to pin notes, scraps and old photos to; it also makes a fun addition to antique doll collections, Creepy Doll displays, etc.
Sold "as is"--see all photos as to condition & appearance

Please note: My shop is smoke free, but I have a little dog whose hairs can occasionally land on/in a package no matter how hard I try to keep her away from them, so if you are allergic, please be aware--thanks so much!
