A charming little Shaker pin cushion. To show you how small it is, we've photographed it with an average sized stone cut apple (no for sale).
Made for a sewing basket or chatelaine, this tiny piece has a silk-covered cushion resting in a grass basket. The cushion is in the iconic Shaker pink color and their spiderweb design. The Shakers grew their own silk worms and made their own silk, an admirable feat. This sewing tool constitutes an authentic bit of Shaker history. In good condition, showing wear and age patterns on the silk from normal, daily use. The basket is in exemplary condition. The pin cushion has a mere 1 3/4" diameter.
