This unusual old pincushion has a double figure, a lady and a pierrot, with the ruffle around his neck. The actual pincushion is hard stuffed, and covered with a pretty Paisley printed cotton fabric with an overskirt of beige with a hint of pink, and brown polka dots. It is trimmed with two flounces of pretty ecru lace, sewn on by hand with a type of herringbone stitch, and topped by a dusty pink ribbon entwined with one of metallic gold or bronze, which has tarnished with age. I am listing this in "as found" condition, the figures are in very good condition, but the skirt has faded a bit over the years, still a very attractive piece to add to your collection.

Pin cushion is 6 1/2" wide and 5 3/4" high
