As Seen in Victorian Homes Magazine
From a time in history when fine needlework was practiced by every wealthy Parisian lady, this pincushion was sold as a special souvenir in a luxury shop. Ornate designs on both sides of the gilded metal cover, one side features all the rococo swirls and scrolls so beloved in the mid 1800's, while the other spells out SOUVENIR.
In between, the luscious deep Merlot wine colored velvet to hold the pins is still in fabulous condition. A luxury treat for any sewing antiques collection, display this with pride in your sewing basket or in a small objet d'virtu case. Measures 2" x 1-1/2".
