Tit for Tat – 2

Greek motif tatting shuttle

 

Friends, i’ve found this lovely vintage tatting shuttle at my local antiques and collectable store today – it appears to be silver plated; it’s light in weight.  I’ll give it a clean – I think it will clean up nicely.  It has a pick at one end and a ring at the other – I’m not sure why it would have a ring at the other end; did women in the past wear them on chatelaines or as necklaces? If you know anything about these types of shuttles, please feel free to leave a comment.

There was another stirling silver shuttle at the store too – I put it on layby; it looked lonely!

  1. No idea of the answer to your question, but I would wear this as a piece of jewellery – it is beautiful!
