This really is one of the most beautiful pin cushions I have ever seen. It is made from pale pink silk that is sawdust filled and then covered front and back with two long panels of Heraldic Filet Lace that has been skilfully held in place with pink silk ribbon that is tied in a bow at each corner. I suspect that this beautiful cushion has never been used as it is in pristine condition aside from a couple of age related foxing marks to the pink bows at each corner. The Filet lace is in lovely condition and features Heraldic lions and symbols which are possibly eagles with crowns. It measures 11 inches by 3.5 inches. A really beautiful piece for the collector of antique needlework accessories.
