Vintage Louise Economy SPOOL RACK PIN CUSHION Victorian - eBay (item 310068594676 end time Jul-24-08 19:49:43 PDT)
This vintage pincushion is metal with a red cotton covering for the cushion and comes with 8 spool pins for thread. The underside is embossed, "The Louise Economy."
Searching online, I found Louise Economy collar supporters for high-necked Victorian collars. That suggests this pin cushion came from Victorian times.
It comes with a vintage metal size 8 thimble that sits nicely atop the finial. I included two small spools of thread, one of which has a vintage wooden spool, to show you the scale of it. It can be taken apart to replace the cover as needed and needs nimble fingers to reassemble it.
