Description

Brighton Pavilion Sewing Compendium, a stunning rare compendium of architectural design, inspired by Nash's Brighton Pavilion. This exquisite tunbridge ware pavilion is naively painted, has its original untouched surface and superb patination and something we have never seen before is the turquoise coloured ring between the onion shaped top and the base, all totally original. The onion shaped top unscrews to reveal a faded pink pincushion which shows signs of little wear, the brighton pavillion base also unscrews revealing vibrant painted thimble, tape, waxer, thread holder and needle case all in superb condition. Pieces such as these were unique to the south east of England and architectural designs were particularly desirable. This example is no exception and very much sought after by collectors of sewing items, Tunbridge and Treen.
