Pincushion

Description:

A large pincushion of red velvet, decorated with raised beadwork embroidery depicting an eagle on a branch, carrying two U.S. flags with a shamrock-like motif between. The pincushion has a scalloped edge all around, also beaded, with beaded loops at each point. Backed with mauve cotton satteen. Densely padded, probably with a mix of sawdust and bran.
