A delightful old Victorian inlaid sewing shuttle with an inlaid mother of pearl flower surface. This is a nice early lightweight material and I believe is a Victorian piece.
It measures just under 3 inches (7.3 cm) across.
There is some light wear to the occasional mother of pearl inlay clearly visible in the photos - it is mainly dulled with just a couple of tiny chips, including one to an underneath tip. Given its age this is in reasonably good vintage condition. Quite charming!
I will happily combine postage with all additional button items being post free - just one postage charge paid.
All my items are vintage and inevitably have signs of age related wear which I try to describe honestly and openly. I am based in London, England and have been selling vintage jewellery and collectables online for the last 12 years. I have a passion for vintage items - especially buttons and rare glass beads - and constantly seek out the unusual and interesting.
Please check dimensions written in the listing as items viewed on a screen frequently appear larger than they are in real life.
I'm happy to add this lovely shuttle to my collection!
