Victorian, 1830s to 1900s
Beautiful reticulated Sterling Silver antique pin cushion dates from the late 1800s. It measures overall 2 3/4" by 2 5/8" at the widest point and 1" deep, not including the height of the pillow. Sterling weight is approximately 34.9 grams, over a dwight ounce. This weight does not include the pillow.
Pillow is custom made of light green velvet and is in excellent condition for it's age with no tears on the top. There is miniscule spot on the back where the fabric's weave is slightly opened. It is starting to show a bit of wear on the high points, which is consisten with age.
The Sterling work is gorgeous, very finely made with scroll patterns that point in all directions.

We measure bracelets based on their wearable length, not the actual length. We do this because chunky bracelets will have a smaller wearable length than the actual length as the thickness of the bracelet reduces the internal measurement. If at any time you would like the actual length and is not in the description, please feel free to contact us.
