Strawberry Cap (and friends)

I have been wanting an original metal cap for a strawberry emory or pin cushion for a while now, years. I want to be able to look at the cap itself and how it is attached. It turns out getting one to study is easier said than done. They start a little over a hundred and go up from there. So, when I saw a withered away strawberry with its cap up for sale for the cost of a pizza, I knew it had to be mine.

I got the ping that it arrived mid-day. Then anxiously awaited the last bell to go get my mail. I opened its bag and box and tissue to find….. It came with friends!

I am delighted with both my withered strawberry and its two little friends.

  1. I think this is really great to see. Have been acquiring repro items to simulate a top and velvet berry, but it’s so hard to find anything accurate. Nice!! Thank you for sharing!

  2. So, after close examination will you be making some of the excellent reproductions like you made a few years back and I missed out on one of those.

  3. Very cool. I love that white one.
