I am sure this piece was previously a pin cushion(and could be again!) It has wonderful styling. The eyelet holes are punched through, so it could have had laces. I have threaded a ribbon through to show the effect. Detail of the casting is good, there is a studded band across the front, and ribbed detailing all around the welt. It measures about 5" long and stands about 2 1/4" at the highest point. It has a really nice patina. c1900
