Shuttle Collection

Here are a collection bone and ivory shuttles. These are various ages. Many of these have a great patina to them. I am not doing them justice with my descriptions here as I am too lazy to get out the shuttle books and wanted to post them as soon as I could. The large one at the top, center is ivory and came in a set with an ivory silk winder, 2 thread barrels a couple of winders. It has a wonderful feel to it and is a large shuttle.
