MAKE BEAUTIFUL HEIRLOOM HATPINS
of collecting hatpins has been termed "hatpinology."
During the late 1820's, a machine was developed for making and heading pins. It was patented in the United States in 1831 and in England and France in the two years following. A team of 10 men could produce 48,000 pins a day with the aid of the machine. Prior to the machine, a skilled pinner could hand wrought 20 pins a day.
It is interesting
to note that the term "pin money" goes back centuries to the
handmade, expensive pins, and to the custom of giving a lady a gift
of money for the purchase of pins.
