Whimsy Pin Cushion with Bird
Whimsy Pin Cushion with BirdThis antique Bird Pin Cushion Whimsy was made using clear, blue, green, yellow and red colored Seed Beads. You will also see some gray and pink Basket Beads in the pictorial design. The crafter added Beaded Looped Tassels with basket and seed beads to the bottom. This cushion features raised beadwork of a bird with leaves and flowers beaded on a tan velveteen fabric which is still in good condition. The back is in good condition with no tears but has some staining.
It is a classic example of the 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.
It measures about 9" x 9" not including the bottom tassels. The thickness is about 3.25″.
One of a kind!
