I recently acquired a new old shuttle from Linda via E-Bay.
Luckily for me, the shuttle was delivered just before the postal strike!
Her description: “Super antique Cantonese carved tatting shuttle/winder c1840, decorated with pretty floral design and measuring 7cm long and 2.9cm wide. In very good condition with a small sliver missing from one edge, and small sliver missing from the underside on one half.”
I'm happy to add this pretty little work of art to my collection.
