An Edwardian novelty silver pin cushion modelled as an elephant, Adie & Lovekin, Chester 1909, 3.7cm long, together with an Edwardian novelty silver pin cushion modelled as a canoe, Birmingham 1902 (maker's marks worn), 8.6cm long (2)
Canoe: Moderate denting to body throughout. Beginning signs of splitting to the ends of the model and to the base. Heavy scratching, wear and tear commensurate with age and use. Some of the engraved detail and the hallmarks around the ends of the boat have worn considerably. Possible signs of repair to the base of the canoe. Cushion shows general wear and tear, but no splitting, major damage or repair - the fabric may be a later replacement.
Elephant: Moderate denting, around the body, legs and head. Small splits around the cushion and legs. Heavy scratching and wear. Extensive wear to the cushion, leaving only the weave. Silver polish residue around the cushion and in crevices.
