Exquisite antique Georgian / Regency embroidered silk layette pin cushion, baby
Exquisite antique Georgian / Regency embroidered silk layette pin cushion. A really wonderful antique pin cushion, dating from the late 18th to early 19th century. It would have been made as a special gift for an expectant mother & her baby. It’s made from cream silk satin & has a rose & heartsease (viola tricolor) flowers in the centre. Around the sides are the words’Happinefs, Prosperity and Joy, attend the little girl or boy’ in handmade pins. Each corner also has a little motif worked in pins. The maker even decorated the underside with a lovely blue bell-shaped flower. The edges are trimmed with braid & two of the corners have a tassel. The pins are interesting in their own right as there are different sizes used. The silk has some little surface scuffs but no splits. There’s the odd tiny age spot. The edging braid has come loose in a couple of places. Really though, this is a simply delightful piece. The embroidery is of a very high standard. The condition is very good for the age of the piece & for over all decorative appeal, I’d say it’s one of the loveliest I’ve seen. 8″ x 6″ or 21 cm x 15 cm.
