SHIPPING DELAY. We are away on a buying trip; shipping will resume on October 28, 2019. This antique crazy quilt pin cushion is a great example of Victorian handicrafts. The top side is made from silk remnants of random shapes, some in solid colors, some plaid, striped, and floral, joined together with mostly Open Cretan Stitch, in a variety of colored threads--wouldn't it be lovely to see the gowns that these fabric remnants came from? There are yellow silk bows on three of the four corners of the pincushion, and the entire perimeter is embellished with 1 1/4 in. lace. The underside is covered in a plush brown-and-cream striped silk velvet. The lace has been stitched by hand; it's hard to tell whether the top and bottom sections joined by hand or machine. Great gift for the quilt collector, Victoriana enthusiast, or seamstress. See condition and measurements below.

MEASUREMENTS:
Approx. 6 1/4 x 6 1/4 in. excluding lace; approx. 2 1/2 in. high
Lace is 1 1/4 in. wide

CONDITION: Excellent antique condition considering age. The pieced fabrics are in great shape, as is the stitching, all retaining their vibrant colors. The lace has no breaks, tears or stains. The three bows are shattered, however, and the velvet underside has a dark spot about the size of a dime (please see photos), none of which detracts.

A NOTE ABOUT VINTAGE: Everything we sell at AlegriaCollection is vintage, meaning that it's at least 20 years old, often much older. Consequently, most of our items show evidence of previous use and, in general, this is viewed as adding to the aged character of a piece. We make every effort to accurately describe any flaws and encourage you to carefully read the description, particularly when purchasing vintage as a gift.
