A biscornu is a small 8-sided, stuffed ornamental pincushion or decorative pillow. Usually the top and bottom of the cushion are decorated with embroidery.
A button is typically secured in the center of the cushion to give a small depression on the top. Beads, tassels and other objects can decorate the biscornu!
