pair vintage hand carved Light Horn Thread Winders

Lovely pair of vintage hand-carved natural horn 8-point thread winders, made during the last quarter of the 20th century in a much older style. The horn is a creamy, translucent beige with streaks of lighter and darker shades. The incised circle-and-dot motif that accents each point has been darkened with bright blue dye or ink. All surfaces and edges have been polished silky-smooth and feel wonderful in your hand.

Each winder measures about 1-5/8″ long and 1-3/8″ high, and about 1/16″ thick. Sold only as a matched pair.

The condition isĀ  excellent and both winders appear unused. They are study enough for everyday use in your sewing box.
