c1830 Canton carved floral ivory tatting shuttle

$175.00

This circa 1830 genuine ivory tatting shuttle was hand carved in Canton, China, most likely for export to the Western market and may have been part of a sewing workbox. Both sides are deeply carved with the same floral and leaf design.

The condition is excellent with sharp, intact points. There are a couple tiny “flea bites” along the edges that aren’t visible but can be felt if you run your fingernail along the edge. It measures about 3-1/8″ long by 7/8″ wide and nearly 1/4″ thick.
