A charming sewing tool from a time past. Dating later Victorian era. Made of a dark faille fabric the emory pincushion, is a replicate of a lady's high top button shoe.
A scant 2" tall, it is a miniature piece of art. Possibly even hand made. Tightly stuffed with emory, it is seamed down the middle of front, back and underside. Tiny straight pins are inserted along each of these seam lines. A nice embellishment to the shoe.
Size is 2" tall x 2" long from toe to heel. Depth is about 3/8" at the thickest point.
Condition: Definitely decent for the age. A small wear on the toe and heel. A loss of a few pins at the seam line.
Here is a quaint emory to add to a sewing collection.
