Whimsy Beaded Pin Cushion Spade
Whimsy Beaded Pin Cushion SpadeAn Iroquois crafter created this Antique Beaded Spade Pin Cushion Whimsy using clear, transparent yellow, green and blue seed beads with red line basket beads making this raised pictorial design. This piece has brown velveteen fabric on the front and red cotton fabric on the trim and back. The artist used clear seed beads to make the tassels and hanging loops. The whimsy has very little bead loss and is in great condition. A previous owner used this cushion, and it still has a pin in it.
This whimsy is a classic example of Beaded Whimsy tourist souvenirs. Native American crafters in the border regions between Canada and the United States at the turn of the 20th century created many of these whimsies for the tourist trade. This Pin Cushion will make an unusual addition to your antique or whimsy collection!
It measures about 7″ long x 7″ wide. The thickness is about 3.5″.
One of a Kind!
