Victorian Velvet Strawberry Pincushions

Layette pincushions like these were considered fitting presents to a new mother, between about 1770 and 1890. They served as a safe place to stash diaper pins. These were only gifted after the baby arrived, as it was believed that they could increase the pain during birth: “For every pin a pain,” & “More pins, more pain.” Also, giving a gift before the birth seemed inappropriate given the fact that many mothers & children did not survive childbirth.
