First manufactured around 1875 by craftsmen in the county of Kent, in the south east of England, this sewing accessory has survived incredibly well. Its detailed and intricate decorative mosaic of different woods remains intact. The wear on the original sliding top velvet covering to the pin cushion serves to authenticate the antique status of this 3" by 2" sewing piece. Worldwide insured air shipping included in the list price. Nothing else to pay.
