About this treasure
A modern revival of German made porcelain half doll pin cushions that were so popular in the 1920s. This elegant lady pin cushion was made in the 1990s by a company which is famous for reproducing Victorian inspired toys and ornaments. Instead of a porcelain half body, I believe this is made of resin. Nevertheless, this beautiful half doll is wearing a lace dress with sequins and crochet lace trimming embellishments. Her face is painted beautifully with a very soft and gentle expression that reminds me of a very amiable auntie.

 

You do not have to love sewing to bring this home. Simply display it anywhere your heart desires, or use as a jewellery trinket box. I am able to part with this because I have a few in my private collection. I am therefore very excited and delighted to be sharing one with the lucky you.

We found this pair of beautiful vintages in an antique market in Calgary, Canada.

Conditions
Excellent vintage condition. I believe this trinket box was never put to real use. The former owner might have bought it as a collectible item.  I had the feeling I was the first one to untie the ribbon so I can take photographs of the interior. This pin cushion is just stunning inside and out.

Use a soft cloth to wipe this treasure. To avoid gathering dust, you may think of displaying this item in a glass cabinet. Please avoid storing it in a humid place. DO NOT wash with water or soak in any solution. When in doubt, please take it to a professional dry cleaner for help.
