Here's a lovely shoe shaped pin cushion from around 1900. It measures 3 1/2" long and 1 3/4" high. It's a vintage souvenir of Washington D.C. and the Capitol and on the front it reads "Washington D.C. The Capitol". It's made of beautifully gilded metal with a light pink velvet topped pin cushion. The shoe itself is a wonderful classic shoe with a perfect balanced heel. The condition is quite good -I think the gilding is in very good shape for it's age. The cushion is also very nicely preserved. With so many eyes on Washington - this would be a perfect keepsake for so many people who focus on our Nation's Capital.
