This nice little tatting shuttle is carved of ivory and has a lovely old patina and grain pattern. It was made in China for English export in the early 19th century. It measures 2 3/8" long by almost 7/8" wide and was probably made for a sewing workbox.

Both sides are deeply carved with a scrolling leafy floral design. The condition is excellent with no chips or other damage and the points are intact. A similar example is shown on p. 211 of Gay Ann Rogers' book "An Illustrated History of Needlework Tools".
