Hand Crafted Wood Lace Making Bobbin

Dave made this 4 ½ inch Continental style lace bobbin out of Rosewood, recycled carved mammoth ivory and pearlized celluloid accent rings. Dave recycles some of the fine ivory dust left over from making carvings by mixing it with resin and casting it into blocks that he can turn on his lathe. This bobbin is drilled for a spangle and initialed and dated by Dave.

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