Pin Cushion, Abreuvoir brown
With a cute pumpkin shape, this pin cushion is hand made with chestnut brown toile on ecru fabric.
The brown toile is a re-edition of the “Drinking Trough” (L'abreuvoir) Jouy fabric, designed by Jean-Baptiste Huet around 1797. It was given this title for the numerous scenes of animals drinking water, and you can also see farmhands merrily drinking and dancing. The size of the motifs has been reduced by half compared to the original design.
Completely hand made in a small workshop just around the corner from Maison Sajou, some differences can be found on all the models, notably with the threads and the fabric used to cover the buttons, which makes each model unique.
It is tightly stuffed to make it easy to pick both pins and needles.
Dimensions: 3-1/2" wide x 1" high (8 cm x 2.5cm)
Blue Sajou label on the side.
