Antique Mauchline Fern Ware / Merry Chrismas Tatting Shuttle * Scottish * C1890s:
Antique Mauchline Fern Ware Tatting Shuttle
Scottish * Circa 1890s
This nice little tatting shuttle was made of sycamore wood, probably by the W. & A. Smith Co in Mauchline Scotland. The fern design is a colored transfer print and it has a Christmas greeting overlaid on one side. The Victorians had a passion for flora and fauna and ferns were very much in vogue.
The condition is excellent with no chips or cracks and the varnish is intact. It has no wobble and measures 3 1/8" long by 3/4" wide.
I stand behind everything that I offer and guarantee that it is exactly as presented.
