This souvenir pin cushion is decorated on both sides with reverse painted scenes from Kings College Cambridge. On the front is a view of the chapel, and on the reverse, a depiction of the college's coat of arms. Reverse painting is done on the underside of the glass so that the glass protects the painting from wear.

This is a feature of Samson boxes, something not seen on Eighteenth century English boxes. The width is 135 mm (...
