[E353]

This gorgeous ivory tatting shuttle is the largest and most ornate I've ever seen in this style. It is made from a singe, solid piece of ivory and both sides are deeply hand carved with figures in a landscape of Oriental buildings and foliage. It has a glossy old patina and a nice ivory grain pattern. It was made in China for English export in the early 19th century. It measures 3 5/8" long by 1 1/2" wide.

The condition is outstanding without even the smallest chip to the intricate carving. There is no damage at all and the points are intact. An example is shown on p. 84 of Nerylla Taunton's book "Antique Needlework Tools and Embroideries". The postage shown includes Registered shipping for non US addresses and insured shipping within the US.
