When I first saw this adorable piece, I though it was a stick match holder. But, with the hole in the bottom of his top hat, it's obvious that is was a pin cushion, with the cushion missing. There is a black and silver, foil sticker on the front of the top hat that identifies it as a "souvenir of Memphis, Tenn.". It measures 3 inches tall, by 3 inches wide, and is in very good condition...less the missing pin cushion. Marked on the bottom, "Made in Japan".
I currently have several vintage sewing items in my shop, including other pin cushions, and am happy to combine shipping. To see them all, type, "sewing" in the California Girls search box at the top of the page.
If you are ordering more than 1 item from my shop, wait to pay until I send back an invoice with the combined shipping discount.
