PIN - 1 Handmade Vintage Pincushion

Figural Reticella Lace Bird


3" high and 4" by 4 3/4", with pointed corners and concave-curved sides, this pin cushion combines usefulness with charm.

Blue satin is hand-stitched over a rather solid core.

A 4" by 4 1/2" figural lace decorates the front. Reticella lace displays a closely-worked bird and small designs against an open-connectors background. Woven, honeycomb-lace patterns and strategically placed openwork create the detailed designs. Dainty picots decorate buttonhole-stitch connectors.

This pin cushion is clean and in very good condition, ready for your home.

That dark dot in the photo is one pin, left in place by the previous owner.
