Absolutely darling little sewing companion straight out of a fairy tale!

Item is constructed of brightly painted wood with a high gloss finish. A wee grey rabbit is hanging out under a large Amanita toadstool with another, smaller toadstool in front of him. Off to the side on the grass, is a yellow pail with a light green plastic thimble inside and this is shaded by a tall cheerful yellow flower.

The flower is really a small pincushion, and the larger toadstool comes off to hold sewing needles.

This was very slightly, but lovingly restored. The pincushion was originally only deteriorated yellowed sponge material (yuck!), but now is full of pure cotton and covered with vintage period feed sack material in complementary colors, and sporting 3 bright colored straight pins that are included. The thimble is also a replacement, but is again vintage and fits in nicely with all the colors here.

This has been part of my personal collection of toadstool items for a few years now and it is looking for a new home. "Made in Japan" sticker is still intact on the base as well.
