So there I was, wasting time on eBay and placed very low bids on some silver pincushions. Unfortunately, I won FOUR of them!!!! Oh dear!
But this one arrived in the post - a heart shaped one c1850 - it still has the animal hair stuffing in the cushion part.
It's a little box as well - the top lifts up.
I love it!
Ps I hope the other two are as lovely as the elephant and this one.
