This item is an ENGLISH CHATELAINE PINCUSHION. It is hallmarked Sterling - Birmingham 1900. This would have been one of the numerous accessories a lady would attach to her chatelaine in Victorian times. This one measures 1 1/2” by 1/ 3/8 “ in diameter and has a hook for attaching. The pin cushion material, sandwiched in between the two sides, is original purple velvet. The pincushion is nicely decorated and in excellent condition.
