Antique Early 1800s Gold Filled / Hand Painted PIN KEEP Cushion Safe Chatelaine
Interesting old "Pin Keep" or pin cushion / pin safe from an old local estate. Icould be wrong, but I really feel from the shape and style that this is a very early 1800s piece. However, I'll let you decide and if any seasoned collectors would like to weigh in, I'd love to hear your comments.
The frame of the piece is metal and while it isn't marked as such, I'd say it is gold filled or gold plated. There are 26 tiny holes around the outside edge of the frame for storing pins and there are4 glass head pins included - 2 blue, 1 amber, 1 white.
The center of the piece is fabric covered possibly over heavy card stock paper or thin cardboard. Slightly puffed. The front has a hand painted floral design on cream or light tan fabric. The reverse has a plaid fabric covering. Measures 2 inches tall and 1 7/8 wide - not including the pins.
If you enlarge the photos, you can see at a few corners, the cardstock peeking out where the fabric didn't quite cover to the frame. Not as easy to see in real life as in the enlarged photos, but want to point it out. There are some dark spots on the metal frame. I didn't try to polish it to see if they would polish out. They don't really bother me and to be expected on a piece of this age. One of the blue glass pin heads is half broken off and the pin heads are a bit dusty as you can see.
Simple, yet nice old piece - full of charm - for your collection!
