Lancaster County Pin/Sewing Balls

Circa 1870, Amish ball is intricately covered completely in layers of deep red linen thread, then fabulously embroidered in linen, silk and wool thread in “God’s Eye” and sunburst patterns. Solidly stuffed with what feels like straw. No evidence of use (i.e., pin holes). Although these Amish wool fabric balls are often called pin cushions many show little use or wear. They were often given as gifts to special friends and family members and hung in a cupboard or on a shelf for display. Outstanding condition. 3 ½” diameter

Also late 19th century, this second ball is ball made of boldly multicolored wool yarn bands with eight piping delineated segments. One early pin is still in this ball. Very minor wear manifested as spots of fuzzing in the yarn. 5” diameter.

Both from collection of the late Joyce Leiby.
