c1800 carved bone lucet with star pattern
Antique hand carved bone Nordic lucet (a tool used to make braids or cording) dating from around 1800– one appraiser thought it might be even older and dated it to the early 1700s.
2″ tall by 1-1/4″ wide and quite thick at more than 1/16″, so it is very sturdy. The bovine bone is very pale with fine graining and detailed carvings and a very smooth finish. In excellent condition.
