Edwardian solid ebony pin cushion with its original cover. Measures 1.25 inches tall x 2 inches in diameter, stamped 'EBONY MADE IN ENGLAND' to the base.
This extremely slow growing hardwood was imported from British India and was a popular vanity set material with both men and women from around the turn of the century to the mid 1920s, when the timber became too rare and expensive to be economically viable. These ebony relics of the period have been highly prized ever since.
The velvet cover is worn and showing its cork body beneath in one place, it could be replaced if desired. The ebony is in perfect condition with no chips or cracks, it has a very highly polished patina.
If you have any questions please get in touch. I combine postage so please see my other ebony vanity items. In the past I have sourced ebony items for dealers, The National Trust, film sets and private collectors alike; if you are looking for something that I do not have listed please get in touch. Those few who endeavour to find fault in order to receive free goods will kindly note that I do not offer refunds without return.
