A fabulously sentimental handmade pin cushion from England.

This piece of folk art is in excellent condition. I found it wrapped up in white linen, so its colours look as bright as new! I believe it to date from the early 20th century. It bears a resemblence to the so called Trench Art pin cushions I have seen which were popular souvenirs made for and by soldiers during the First World War; though this one has no named regiment.

Hand sewn from red, olive green and black felt, very firmly stuffed with sawdust. Multi-coloured glass & metal beads and faux pearls have been arranged and fixed to the cushion with steel pins, and there is a white cotton fringe running around the edges. All of the small beads are intact, but there is one pearl bead missing ( top left) and another in the center has a small dent. The back has what appears to be a glue stain, and there is a small hole which has allowed a bit of the sawdust to leak out. It measures approx. 6 inches long, 4.5 inches wide and 2 inches deep.
