OOAK Vintage Pincushion

Definitely One-of-a-Kind! This Connecticut antique market find has been transformed (by me) into a pincushion. (From what? I don't know, maybe a vase?) 

When my 26-yo son and I saw this at the Elephant's Trunk in New Milford, he said "Sick!" and I said "Perfect!" I like this fancy little Renaissance guy. The piece is unglazed bisque, and the cushion is pink silk dupioni. Pinsies included. See this pincushion.

Here's another favorite find turned into a pincushion: the Hand & Purse. (Sold.)
