★ Antique Carved Ivory Pin Cushion / Disc * C1850

★ Antique Carved Ivory Pin Cushion / Disc * C1850
This antique carved ivory piece is a pin cushion in disc form. This allowed the pins to be pushed flush into the sides so it wouldn't snag other items in the work bag. This one also has a velvet lined open center on one side so that it could be used as a pin cushion while sitting on a table. The cushion around the sides is dark red silk and is stuck with some old steel pins. The ivory has a small chip in the area surrounding the velvet, but is otherwise perfect. It measures almost 2" in diameter and has a silk ribbon tab at the top. The ivory grain pattern and patina are lovely....
