An elegant antique pincushion handmade from silk, glass and gold mesh netting.
The figural pincushion is a basket of fruit, the fruit is made from pale pastel silk covered cotton wool.
The fruits sit in a silk covered glass covered with layers of metallic gold mesh trim, the entire basket is covered with metallic gold netting.
The overall condition is very good though there is wear to the fragile silk on several pieces of fruit, there are a few tiny holes in the netting. None are distracting and the netting keeps it all secure. Photo 5 shows the worst of the wear to the fruit.
Measures 4.5" in diameter at the top, the base is 3", the height is 3" high.
A lovely antique Victorian pincushion and great addition to any collection of sewing accessories.
