Item details

This antique hetchel used for combing out flax fibers is fun treasure made of wood with rusty spiked nails. This old tool has great warm patina along with initials of E W carved into the wood. The wood is surprisingly fairly smooth.

The antique hetchel is in solid condition with rusty nails, worn marks and holes in the wood, scratches, some of the spikes are bent, a little dusty inside the spikes. This listing is for the hetchel only, all other items are for photo props. Sold as is.

The hetchel is very heavy and measures just over 21 inches long x 6 inches for the wood portion, the spikes measure roughly 6 inches long x 4 inches wide x 4 inches high, the board and nails together measure 5 1/2 inches high.

I do COMBINED SHIPPING for multiple items purchased when ever possible and refund shipping overages over $2.00. Most items can be combined, however there are some items that need to be shipped seperatly to protect them or due to their shape and size. If you would like a shipping quote on a multiple item order please message me with your zip code and items you are interested in.

****Please be sure to ask before purchasing if you're on a deadline for your purchase to arrive in time for your special need.

***Please know that it is the customer's responsibility to make sure their address is correct before purchasing and that there is a safe place for the postal carrier to leave the package at the destination. This includes safety from weather elements and from theft.

I ship with USPS (first class, priority mail, or USPS Retail Ground ( parcel post, standard post) for large or heavy items. Please know that Parcel post can take up to a few weeks in some cases to arrive but usually 7-12 business days). I will do my best to combine shipping but there may be cases where items may not be able to ship together due to needs of packaging. I do not make money off the shipping, but do need to cover the expenses such as boxes, bubble wrap, paper, tape, printer ink, and gas to go to the post office.

****International customers please know that all Vats, duties, taxes and customs fees or any extra fees are your responsibility.

I mail in both new and gently used packing materials.


I except Paypal and credit cards through both Etsy and Paypal. I usually try to mail out purchases on the same day as the sale if time allows. Otherwise Items will be shipped with in 1-2 business days after receiving and clearing payment. (Please note if holiday disrupts mailing, shipping times could be longer) and my estimates of delivery is just that, an estimate, as hiccups can take place with USPS that are out of my control for arrival deadlines.

** Michigan residents please note I will be collecting Michigan sales tax (6%)
