This wonderful crochet hook was hand carved of real ivory and the large size would make it perfect to crochet with heavy wool. The long length would also make it usable for doing the afghan or Tunisian stitch. The top is intricately carved with a spiral pattern and topped with a nice finial.
The condition is excellent with no chips, cracks or other damage and it was purchased in England. It measures 9 5/8" long and has lovely ivory grain and a glossy patina. The hook is about the same size as an American size K (7.00 mm).
