Antique Georgian Layette Birth Pin Cushion Sewing Box - Welcome Little Stranger For Sale

Antique Georgian Layette Birth Pin Cushion Sewing Box - Welcome Little Stranger

A beautiful antique layette pin cushion made to welcome a new baby, circa 1830. On this example the pins are arranged on the silk cushion in a naive plant in a vase and the words:

WELCOME LITTLE STRANGER - AMEN

The cushion sits in a finely made rosewood sarcophagus shaped box with original lion mask handles and feet. It can be lifted out with two ribbons and the box could have been used to keep cottons, sewing tools etc. tidy whilst working. It has interesting wallpapers as linings.

The whole piece is in good condition with a little fading to the silk. It measures 8 by 6 by 3 inches (20.5 by 15.5 by 8 cm.)
