This beautiful antique pincushion is heart shaped and dates from the Edwardian era. Made from brown cotton it's decorated with a small piece of paper with a quote from the bible - "Abide in My Love, John 15, 10" and small pieces of ribbon pinned. The pincushion has turquoise and silver glass beads sewn around the sides.
This wonderful pincushion was probably made as a "sweetheart pincushion". In WWI soldiers often took up needlepoint as a way to pass the time while recuperating from war wounds. These cushions are decorated with beads, ribbons, felt etc, and were often made from any pieces of fabric which could be found. Often they were embellished with pre-printed papers memorialising the soldier's regiments.
Some age related marks and wear but overall, considering the age of this very collectable pincushion, it's in good antique condition.
