Antique Carved Bone Knitting Needle Guards

Circa 1890 * English

This antique set of knitting needle point protectors is carved of bone* in a nicely turned pattern. The condition is excellent with no chips, cracks or other damage. They are connected by an elastic band so the guards can be tightened over the needles.

Each guard measures 2 1/8" long and they were used to cover a set of double pointed knitting needles so that the knitting wouldn't slide off. A pair are shown stretched over the needles on p. 201 of Gay Ann Rogers' book An Illustrated History of Needlework Tools.

*This item is made of bone from a domestic cow (bovine) and not from an endangered species.
