I personally love figural pin cushions in sterling, they stood as an indication of wealth and social status amongst Victorian women with a continuance of collectability to this day.
In the form of a hare this pin cushion would have been the perfect accompaniment to a lady with an interest in hunting; what better way to end the hunt but to retire with a spot of sewing complete with rabbit pin cushion?
Made by Henry Matthews of London in 1911 this piece measures 2.25" in length(with tail) and bears a genuine antique silk velvet cushion cover in the colour of Royal purple. However the stuffing is new and could probably appear better if replaced.
Overall a fabulous piece which would stand beautifully within a collection.
