Early American Antiques
Georgian knitted pinball made by Mary Horsefall, Aprill 31, 1772. Yes, that's the date! Women of that era frequently included religous sayings in their works to show their piousness, thus on the reverse is "Prepare To Meet Thy God". Knitted in soft, natural threads of browns and tans, with blue and green lettering. The center is wrapped with a brown silk ribbon. At 250 years old, it is in fine condition with minor toning and expected in-use wear to the silk ribbon.
Dimensions: diameter 2"; height 1.5".
