Antique Victorian Sterling Silver and Fabric Emery/Needle Sharpener
Welcome to ROBINS NEST MIDWEST! May I offer….
AGE: C.1890 or so
ITEM: From Art's stash of vintage sewing items, here's a silver topped pin cushion or needle sharpener. The red fabric holds in a hefty amount of fill - doesn't feel like sawdust, feels like something a little heavier.
CONDITION: Very nice but there is tarnish to the silver top and the cushion area has a breakdown in the fabric in some small spots - looks like maybe the fabric is missing from a silverfish attack.
METAL CONTENT: Sterling Silver
HALLMARKS: STERLING on the edge of the top.
SIZE: Stands 1" high x 1-1/4" wide at the base.
WEIGHT: 26 grams
FINAL COMMENTS: Ready for a new home!
