This antique tambour hook is hand turned and carved and has a beautiful old patina and ivory grain pattern. It has a steel collar and thumb screw and the top unscrews to reveal a storage compartment for holding the hooks (There are 2 small steel hooks).

The condition is excellent with no chips or other damage. Everything screws together securely and the thumb screw tightens properly to hold the hook. It measures 5 1/2" long when closed. A similar ivory tambour hook is shown on p. 74 of Nerylla Taunton's book "Antique Needlework Tools and Embroideries".
