This is a Victorian Sewing High Button Shoe Pincushion Needle and Pin Emery. It appears to have been made out of dark brown velvet on one side and a blue velvet on the other. The blue velvet is mostly worn away. The piece was hand-stitched and embroidered and is heavy with emery. Metallic trim made the shoe lacings but has not held up well. There is some wear to the brown velvet as well. It measures 3-1/2 inches long and 2-1/2 inches wide. Some of the lacing has come unstitched.
