Rosewood, Ivory and Bone Tatting Pick



This tatting pick is new but Dave intended to make it look more like an heirloom, something that perhaps a mother may have passed down to her daughter or granddaughter. It is made of Rosewood with a sharp bone pick. 10,000 year old mammoth ivory was used for the carved accent ring on the slip-on point protector. Like most of the ancient ivory, it shows signs of weather cracks, further adding to its antique look, but it is stable and firmly bonded to the wood. The pick is 3 ¼ inches long and with the protector on, it is 4 inches long.

Dave could not really find a good spot to mark this piece with his initials and date, but we will send along a signed “ABOUT THE ARTIST” information card.
