“From Niagara Falls” bead work pin cushion “whimsy”.   This is a piece of history, is from the Niagara Falls souvenirs tradition sold by Haudenosaunee (Iroquois) people beginning in the 1830s into the 1900s. This pin cushion is 6″ in length x 4.5″ across. There is some moth damage on the purple wool background..  The bead work is mostly intact with clear beads and tube beads. The phrase “From Niagara Falls” is in amber colored beads. This is a lovely example of this style bead work. Check out our other whimsies!!
