Description

This is a lovely collector's piece: A solid sterling silver pin cushion, shaped as an elephant carrying a howdah. It is hallmarked on the side for Birmingham. The date letter is partially obscured by the howdah stand, but is it possibly for 1909. The maker's mark is for Adie & Lovekin Ltd.

There are a number of small bumps on the body of the elephant. The fabric of the cushion looks to be original, and consequently there is a small amount of discolouring from years of silver polish. The howdah is firmly attached and the elephant stands squarely. The detail to the eyes and trunk is sharp.
