This is a charming piece of Tunbridge ware in the form of a small table. The treen is of an intricate small Vandyke pattern mosaic. In the centre is a groove which has multiple holes for pins, which when inserted are held firmly in place. The top has a deep blue velvet-covered pin cushion which may also be an emery. The whole piece is in excellent condition. It was acquired a number of years ago from Nerylla Taunton who is well known as the author of a definitive book on needlework tools. This would make a charming addition to a collection of Tunbridge pieces, in particular those related to needlework, or for collectors of pin holders and cushions. Height 1.5 ins (3.8cm), width 1.75 ins (4.5cm). Weight 30 grams. Insured Air Mail Post with tracking to the USA would be $30.00 USD - with no tracking is cheaper.
