A lovely antique sterling silver pincushion. Marked Sterling, makers mark, 1175; the trellised silver is in a heart shape, leather bottom, and fabric lined. The velvet cloth top lid is made of wood. The interior of the pin cushion fabric is shredded with age and the fabric on the lid top is darkened with many pin holes to provide authenticity as to its age!
A wonderful sewing collectible, the little pin holder measures approximately 2 1/4 " long by 2" wide x 1 3/4" tall.
