Shuttle Collection

Ok we are winding down here I promise!

The next group are sterling shuttles. These are from the late 1800's but mostly 1900's. One to note is the shuttle on the left (top row). This one is a bob-o-link shuttle from 1915. I point this one out because believe it or not the top and bottom separate into two pieces. This was something new at the time. It was advertised as an easy winding bobbin shuttle.
