Very Early Pincushion, Wood and Horsehair


translation missing: en.products.item.price.price_per_unit_html

Measures:  2” X 2.5”

The bark is still on this piece of wood, it appears to be hollowed out and stuffed with horsehair to form a pincushion!  The cushion itself is showing wear and the bark has some minor chips but is firmly attached.  I have not been able to find a similar pincushion so I’m going to estimate that this dates to the 1800’s based on the materials used. 

*Pincushion only included in sale, other items are my photos helpers :-)
