This is a Old 19th Century Floral Crewel Embroidered Wool Sewing Pin Cushion. This pin cushion is beautifully made and embroidered. The ground fabric is a tight cotton twill on one side and the other is finely woven cotton and wool. The crewel embroidery is beautifully done (some wear and missing threads) in a floral spray. The side seams are all hand stitched and the cushion is densely stuffed. It measures 3 1/2 inch by 2 1/4 inch. I believe the dating on this wonderful pin cushion would be second to third quarter of the 19th century.
