Antique Pin Cushion French Gilt Ormolu Napoleon III Circa 1860
A delectable little pin cushion direct from France. This unusual antique sewing treasure dates from the 1860 period and imitates a folding Butler's Tray ( the legs do not unfold). The gilding is rich, buttery and opulent and the original green velvet pin cushion cover is in good, sound order. Its cushion made of a hard material. The gilt decorated wires are a little bent but nothing too drastic. This would make a very unusual addition to your antique sewing accessory collection.
