For sale is a charming antique Victorian folk sailor's art pin cushion that I acquired on a recent trip to the Midwest and East Coast. The top is made of black and brown velvet, and has beads held in place with straight pins that depict anchors and 4-point stars with a cross in the middle surrounded by the words "Forget me not". The backing is black linen, it is trimmed with what appears to be hand crocheted lace, and the piece is filled with sawdust, I believe. The pin cushion measures about 12" x 12" including the lace, and is about 2" thick. It is in nice, but antique condition, with areas of missing beads, some lace that needs reattaching on one corner, and some fading on the back, but nice for a piece of this age. Please look carefully at the pictures as they are an important part of the description, and be sure to ask any questions. What a wonderful addition to your vintage/antique sewing or sailor's art collection!
