DescriptionMiniature broom with a yellow-green silk ribbon wrapped around the handle and tied in a bow. The broom handle is a big nail, while the base of the broom is half a cork covered in silk ribbon and inserted with nails. It was probably regarded as a pincusion as well as a charm; it was hung on the wall for good luck. Collected in South London.
