A pretty, delicate swan with an elegant and very long neck serves to hold sewing pins. The beautiful example was found in Paris in a small collection purchased in the estate sale of Monsieur "R".

The swan is very detailed with tiny lines representing the barbs of each feather. The individual feathers, large and small are rounded outward at the center, giving a dimensional effect. The swan's face is pretty, her head delicately bowed. There is an insert cushion covered in pale purple velvet which nests inside the form. There are silver hallmarks on the bottom (Dutch?) as well as the silver content stamp. 800.

She measures: 1 7/8" tall, 2 1/4" wide, 1" deep at widest bottom point. We have not polished this piece, it can be polished to brilliance if desired. The velvet on the cushion is not the original, having been replaced sometime in the past. The straight pins are used for illustration only, they are not sold with the pin cushion.

It is a lovely example.
