Vintage Pin Cushion Basket. This is a silver tone metal basket turned into a pin cushion. I do not know if this is the original use of the basket. The basket is marked Made in Japan. It has a textured basket weave to it. The handle folds down. The pin cushion is a soft velvety red fabric which has been sewn around stuffing. It has been used as there is needle holes present. It is removable. The basket is approx. 4 1/2" to the top of the handle, 3 1/2" long, 2 1/4" to the top of just the basket, 2 1/2" wide. There is wear, aging and discolorations to the metal.
