Antique pin cushion dating; 1860-1880; in the shape of a red strawberry and exquisite striped ribbon. The strawberry measures 1-12 inch long and is 1 inch across or about 2-1/4 inches around. The silk two color ribbon is is 3/8 inches wide and approximately 13 inches long.

The silk ribbon is green with red edges. Original to the pin cushion and attached with knots; it is in excellent condition with no shattering. The strawberry is made of very finely woven, red, tissue wool. The cap of the berry is hand embroidered light green silk thread. A few old pins are still in place. I have no idea how old those are.

Filled with sand, these were invaluable sewing tools, meant to keep needles and pins sharp. Inserting and removing the pins would sharpen the points. Because it is filled with fine sand, it will feel heavier than a standard pin cushion.

Low shipping cost in the USA. International rates vary. I combine shipping on multiple orders and will refund any overcharge of postage a/o insurance.
