Made of mahogany, this revolving cotton reel holder has been fashioned in the shape of a table of the early to middle part of the nineteenth century. There are seven spindles to hold cotton reels, a central thimble holder and around the edge of the table top is a pin cushion. It stands 122 mm (5 inches) high to the top of the spindles, and has a diameter of 132 mm (5.5 inches). It is in very good condition, but I suspect a couple of the spindles have been replaced. c 1850.

This souvenir pin cushion is decorated on both sides with reverse painted scenes from Kings College Cambridge.

The decoration was achieved using the sgraffito method, where the vase was first coated in the rich cobalt blue ground, then the ground was removed with dry brushes exposing the white body to form the flowers. It has been done most delicately and the raised gilt highlights, another Allen speciality, were then added. The p...
