Celluloid "Glacier Ice" Bobbin Tatting Shuttle

After a short respite from winter, it's back for a while here in central Oregon, so it's only fitting that Dave's next shuttle be named "Glacier Ice". The stunning tatted ice skates were tatted by Margaret Brown. These adorable gems arrived in the mail today! Thank you, Margaret!!

Dave carved this approx 2 1/2 inch "GLACIER ICE" celluloid bobbin tatting shuttle to bring out the beautiful patterns within. No two can come out the same. Change the angle of the light and you get pearly ice with blue threads through the shuttle. The bobbin is a common Singer which can be bought in packs of 4 at WalMart or similar store with sewing supplies. The drag on the bobbin can be adjusted with the brass screw axle to keep it from free wheeling. It has a #14 steel picot hook inset in the nose. It is initialed and dated by Dave, the maker.

This tatting shuttle is currently up for auction on Ebay. If you would like to view this auction, please click the link below.
