pair vintage hand carved Black Horn and White Bone Thread Winders
Lovely vintage pair of hand-carved thread winders made from near-black horn inset with ivory-colored bone; these were made during the last quarter of the 20th century in a much older style. Each measures 2-1/8 inches across at the widest point.
They are very smooth and will be suitable for even the most delicate threads. You can see the the fine graining and textures of these natural materials in the photos. The white bone inserts show on both sides, and the incised circle-and-dot motifs that accent each point have been highlighted with white wax or paint.
Sold only as a matched pair.
The condition is excellent and both winders appear unused. They are study enough for everyday use in your sewing box.
