Brighton Pavilion Sewing Compendium Circa 1820
Of architectural design, inspired by Nash's famous creation. The compendium's onion-shaped top unscrews to reveal a barely used red pin cushion. The castle base also unscrews revealing a thimble, tape, waxer, further pin cushion and needle case. Pieces such as these were unique to the south-east of England, with architectural designs being particularly prized and desirable. This example is no exception and today is very much sought-after by collectors of sewing items, Tunbridge and treen.
