Charming sweetheart pincushion

These heart-shaped cushions were produced by wounded soldiers as they were recuperating in hospital. Once complete, they were sent home to wives, mothers and sweethearts as a token of love.

​They often feature short mottos such as “Forget Me Not” or “Remember Me” as well as photos or flags. They are stuffed with sawdust and generally came in kit form which included the mottos, pins and beads.

This particular one bears an image of West Somerset Yeomanry, S Africa 1900-01

Size: 18cm x 18cm approx.
