Leather and Textile Opanak Boot Pincushion
Vintage Opanak Boot Pincushion, likely to have been made in South Eastern Europe (perhaps in the former Yugoslaiva, for example). Another possible origin is Lapland and Siberia where the boots like this are also worn. (Thank you to Margene for sharing her knowledge on these pieces.)
Please note that there is only one of this item available.
This nicely detailed collectable object is useable as a pincushion, or would make a lovely addition to a pincushion collection.
The boot pincushion measures:-
Length x height x width
3 & 1/2 x 2 x 1 & 5/8 inches
8.5 x 5.1 x 4.2 cm
Condition notes: Some fading/discolouration to the red fabric; a few small marks/scrapes to the base. Please view all of the photographs, which show the exact item you will receive.
