This interesting gadget is a weaving shuttle, most likely used when making fishing nets.
Made from timber it has metal tips and a metal needle with an 'eye' to hold the thread. When the needle is upright the shuttle almost resembles a boat!
A wonderful piece for a lover of curious pieces. It would look fabulous as part of a vignette or displayed with some net.
The listed price is for one shuttle.
Measures approx: 39cm x 4cm
