Pin Cushion- Big LADY HEAD -Sewing-Hat Pin-Vintage Vanity
Wonderful vintage lady head pin cushion has 4 plain 1940's vintage hat pins stuck in her cushion. There are only a handful of old pin marks plus these 4 old hat pins (2 shanks are rusting) possibly indicating that, being so pretty, she may have been used on the vanity or dressing table for hat pins instead of for straight pins and sewing. I'm not quite sure what her head is made of... could be paper mache with a chalk coating, or chalk, or a painted bisque ceramic. The base is some type of stuffed cloth with drawstring tie at top. Her face is hand painted with a sideways glancing expression. She has blonde, old doll wig type, hair glued to her head. The surface of her face has reacted to something, maybe moisture, over the years and there are lots of little raised dots on her face, especially the right side, as can be seen in the photos. She's in good condition otherwise and is a neat old piece to display with sewing or vanity collections. 7.75" high x approximate 4.5" diameter at base.
