Ebay shuttle

I found this on ebay..it's still up for grabs. It's listed as from the 1800's but the seller tends to have alot of these in 4 basic designs. It doesn't say what it's made of, just that it's carved. Still it's a beautiful piece of work and I threw my lot in to see if I can get my hands on it to add to my 'show pieces'. There doesn't seem to be enough space to actually use for tatting, it's very thin spacing between the blades.

  1. Wow - very ornate! I wonder what material it is. Ivory would be very rare, but looks like a good imitation.

  3. I've seen this come up many times on ebay over the eyars and go for lots of $$. It's beautiful but I suspect it is only the design from the 1800's, not the actual shuttle.
