c1900 pair of hand carved bone knitting needle tips or guards


Pair of antique hand carved knitting needle tips or guards, each measuring about 1-1/4″ long. Each has two small holes where a decorative cord or ribbon would have been threaded through, to keep the tips together.

Generally good condition with expected age wear and fine cracks, although they are structurally sound and suitable for daily use. Possibly made by a sailor or an inmate as the work is not very skilled.
