Shuttles


When I was taken to an antiques and collectibles fair right out in the sticks in Canada I found these three shuttles which I simply HAD to buy. 

I think the most interesting one is the one in the middle which is French Ivory - here's a link. Now this isn't real ivory, thank goodness, but a type of plastic. I wonder how well that rather large hook would work, though?

  2. I have several of the metal shuttles, although I don't use them. They just feel too cold in my hands. I've never seen one like the French Ivory... great find!
