This fantastic novelty Edwardian pin cushion measures 87mm (3.5'') long x 27mm (1'') across the shell and stands 32mm (1.5'') high to the top of the emu's head. It is hallmarked for solid English sterling silver Birmingham 1909 with the makers mark for the famous producer of novelty pin cushions Adie & Lovekin. It is modelled as an emu or ostrich towing a pin cart and is one of the harder versions to find. It is in good condition complete with its original cushion and great detail to the bird, clear hallmarks and the wheels rotate freely. The shell has been glued into place (photo10) but this is only just visible from the underside. A very rare novelty pin cushion from a top Edwardian maker that has been in private hands for many years and is fresh to the market.
International buyers are always welcome to this sale. F.M.O.C. Postage outside the United Kingdom is at cost please contact me for a quote. Due to the recent large increase in UK postage rates I am happy for international buyers to arrange their own collection and domestic buyers to collect in person. Most international postage rates are listed as NOT signed for and NOT insured so if you require either please let me know and I will add it to your invoice. Sadly due to Italy terrible postage system I will always add £5.15 to the postage charge for signed for to ensure it reaches the customer. If the item is listed as " Signed for " on the postage then obviously it is already included. If you have any questions please do contact me.
