Here  we have a delightful Antique Silver Elephant Pincushion.  The hallmark is a little rubbed with cleaning of the silver over it`s one hundred and sixteen year history, but it can be seen as made by the fine silversmiths Adie & Lovekin (everything I have seen over the years by these silversmiths has been fine quality) Birmingham in 1905.  It is in wonderful condition for it`s age.  For very few years in the early 20th century, silver animal pincushions were very popular - and still are highly collectible today.  However, as mentioned most were produced over just a four or five year period.  This particular example is just about as good as one would find - in that his trunk is still complete and so is his tail - over the years these little pieces can easily suffer damage.  Furthermore this elephant has only very minor signs of a minute dent or two - something of nothing.  He measures just 1.75 inches long and about over 1.25 inches high.   He has a navy velvet pincushion forming his back.


This little silver elephant is perfect for posing with a doll as their toy.  It nestles nicely in a doll`s hand.  I have also photographed it on a small doll`s table - furthermore it looks great with teddies.  It is just a lovely object and  I find such lovely little items display beautifully with antique dolls and bears.  If you have any queries or wish to purchase use ` The "Contact Us" button below or to the left of this page.  Layaway is possible, so ask if you wish.
