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.

In good condition, details as follows:
  • some dings in places
  • replacement pin cushion, outer layer is antique silk velvet. Inner stuffing is new.

Length: 2.25"
Silver weight: 9gms
