A variant brass hemming bird clamp. 1853


An unusual design for a hemming clamp. This one has theusual bird but it's above a rotating pin cushion. It is also made of solid brass rather than of pressed metal.

The details of the patent are underneath the pin cushion.
'Norton's Improved Patent Applied For May 1853'

In excellent condition.
NB. The pin cushion may or may not be a replacement. It is made of red fabric rather than of velvet but this could well be original as it is very neatly done.
