This is the first pin cushion of this sort that I have ever seen. The workmanship on the side with the chariot, horses and driver scene is very detailed, as is the head of the Roman on the other side. (I have only seen these scenes once on a match safe from Whiting Company that I have listed.)It has a chatelaine ring on the top. The two sterling pieces sandwich a pin cushion between them.
Size: 1 3/4" across.
Marks: Whiting Company mark and "Sterling".
Condition: The pin cushion part is in Very Good Condition. The piece has less than expected signs of wear.
