A charming sewing accessory from the late 19th century, it is cast in the form of a proud rooster. It originates from Normandy and dates towards 1900.

Throughout the centuries sewing was an everyday occupation for ladies. During the 19th century many clever and fine accessories were produced to aid a fine lady with her close handwork.

This is a cast figural example with fine detailing. Each feather is lifelike and textural to the touch. The eyes are of tiny red glass stones. There are many tiny holes which serve to hold straight pins. The patina is lovely, with both deep bronze and bright gilding combining to give depth and reality to the form. The rooster stands solidly upon a brass pedestal which has a beveled edge.

The total measurements are: 3 7/8" tall, 2 1/2" wide tip of tail to chest, the pedestal, 1 1/2" in diameter. It is in very good antique condition.

It holds a remarkable number of straight pins for it's size, and is a very serviceable and beautiful sewing accessory from the past.
