This is a classic basket-form pin cushion with a movable handle. The basket has an intricate design of flowers in the top half and the lower half is of basket-weave pattern as is the base, in a different pattern. The pin cushion is of deep blue velvet and still retains a couple of original pins. These pieces are sometimes seen incorporated in sewing sets or placed within a sewing/needlework box. The condition of the silver is very good for age but the velvet is significantly rubbed. This delightful needlework tool would be a lovely addition to any collection of form items. Height approximately 1.75 ins (4.4cm). Weight 18 grams.
