4 all metal, hand painted sewing pins. Handed down the family line but I have no idea how old they really are. I have not seen any like them either.

    Are they tiny? About 1/4" - if so I have some too and they were from the 1960's. Very sweet!

    The entire pin size is 1 1/4 inch. The heads are less than 1/2 inch. Do you have a pic of your pins to share? How dud you acquire your pins?

    I don't have them - they are in my hope chest at my mom's in an old jewelry box with all my disneykins. (gotta get that stuff shipped to me somehow). I bought them at the dimestore in Pocahontas, Iowa which was a special place. Yes, mine are same length and the heads are less than 1/2". I can't remember how much they cost.
