Pincushions have been used since the 16th Century, with silver examples occasionally found in toilet sets during the 17th Century, although these are rare to find. Pins were expensive items until the industrial revolution, so it is from after this that the majority of pincushions were created. The Victorian period saw some wonderful novelty examples in various shapes being made, and it is these that are particularly sought after by collectors today.
