Description

DATE: Edwardian, 1905

A pair of antique sterling silver pin cushions in the form of (as my three year old would put it) piggy porkers. They're really quite charming, one with maker's mark CS*FS - Cornelius Saunders & Frank Shepherd - and both featuring English hallmarks with date letter indicating they were made in 1905. Weird? Yes. Useful? Depends what you're in to... they'd make great paperweights if you don't have a bunch of pins lying around.
