A diminutive pincushion with twenty small calico fabrics stitched in a patchwork quilting on the top. The back is a solid red and corded with red fabric around the middle edge.
The fabrics look to date from the 1930's, possibly a bit earlier or a bit later. The patchwork is probably machine sewn. Probably stuffed with a cotton batting.
Although very nice, it has seen some fading and some usage over the years. Very sweet to add to a collectible group of old sewing tools.
Size: 4-1/4" long x 3-1/4" wide. About 1" in thickness.
