Antique Tin Velvet Pincushion Box -***SOLD - THANK YOU!***

This piece was originally painted a burgundy color on the outside. The inside of it was pink. I painted the entire piece, both inside and out, in a blue distressed finish. A mirror is mounted on the inside of the lid and it is topped with a velvet pincushion that has aged over the years. I'm not sure why it has a mirror on the inside of the lid. Makes me wonder if this piece was originally a pincushion. It's difficult to see the mirror in the photo as the mirror is tilted toward the ceiling, which is white. I stitched a couple of antique pieces of fabric that coordinate with the color of blue paint, and fastened an antique button with a rusty safety pin on top of the pincushion. It measures 3 1/4" diameter, approximately 2 3/4" H, which includes the pincushion. Asking $45 plus shipping. Please click on main image for other photos.
