RECORD PRICE FOR SILVER PIN CUSHION 2018.

Collectors from the UK and as far as the Netherlands were excited when a rare silver pin cushion in the form of a crouching cat came up for auction this week in Plymouth. Auctioneer Paul Keen ‘we sell many novelty silver pin cushions and they can be picked up from £50 to £100, however this cat really took us by surprise!’

The silver hallmark identified is as being made by silversmiths Adie & Lovekin of Birmingham around 1908. Its original untouched condition and scarcity proved irresistible for keen collectors and before the sale, bids were registered as high as £500.

However on the sale evening a battle between determined internet and phone bidders took the cat to a remarkable £1,500 (including premium).

Quite possibly a record price achieved for a silver pin cushion in recent years.
