    I just recently discovered silver shoe pin cushions




    They have sold well at shows recently. I am particularly attached to this one. It is marked 800 silver.

    The pin cushion seems to have deteriorated with age. More than likely it was velvet and it could be replaced.

    That's a beautiful item. I have a weakness for antique sewing implements myself. What are the dimensions?

    It is packed up at the moment, but as I recall it is a little larger than most. I believe about 4 inches. Sewing implements are fascinating! There are so many delicate little tools they used. They must have been very treasured items.

    I have a thing for pin cushions, which can certainly be classified as antique sewing implements. My dream is to find a late 1800's felt pincushion by the Steiff company of Germany.
