Vintage dressmaking pin dispenser / holder, dating from the 1930s or thereabouts
'The Magic Pin Box - British Made' stamped on the base
Made from an early plastic, presumably bakelite. Mottled/speckled effect. Brown with green and orange/red flecks running through it

Attractive novelty item in the shape of a lighthouse

Pins would be dispensed via a hole at the top, using an internal spring mechanism (operated when the top is pushed down). Does not contain any dressmaking pins at present

Height: just over 2.5" (approx. 6.5cm)

A highly unusual little sewing collectible

In good condition. It doesn't look as though it has ever been used. A few superficial scratches. No chips or cracks. Spring mechanism works well

Please note: thimble and button have been shown for purposes of scale only - they are not included in the sale

Any questions, please feel free to ask

I am happy to provide a combined shipping discount - please see 'Shop Policies' for details. Shipping costs are usually estimated at time of listing (particularly for combined shipping) but any significant overcharge will be refunded
