This is a vintage, cute, cowrie shell face, pin cushion. He still has his original hang tag label “Little Pin Head” probably from around the 1950’s. He is made with a hollowed out cowrie shell for the head and an upside down scallop shell for the base. The pin head has a carved mouth and little circles for his eyes and nose. He is stuffed with red velvet and has a red ribbon tied around his neck. He was purchased many moons ago in Virginia Beach, VA.

He is in great vintage condition and would be a nice addition to a pin cushion collection. He would also make a fun gift for someone who sews.

Dimensions are 3.25 inches tall by 2.25 inches wide.
