Day 1 - shuttles


Remember my win on Fleabay? Whoops, I mean Ebay!!! 

I may not have mentioned it here because I'm a bit - well, the kindest word is forgetful!!!  There's a picture at the top of this post of the win. I paid very little considering the contents and count myself extremely lucky.  Over the next few days/week or so I'm going to show you each in detail. 

Today's shuttle is a very shiny one. It's wooden and it appears old to me but I'm not sure. Any ideas would be very welcome.`

  3. That is a very pretty shuttle. I'm trying hard not to shuttle shop. I really don't need any more. However, when I see one that I sets my heart aflutter, I just can't stop my fingers from flying over the keys and pressing that Enter button!

  5. Ah, so you got those, did you?!

    I thought they looked like an interesting mix of shuttle styles.

    (And no, I wasn't bidding against you! These days all my eBay activity is vicarious. :-/ )

  6. I tend to agree with Liyarra.... it looks like veneer to me too, and probably is abalone shell. The centre is definitely wood painted or lacquered black. Pretty!!
