Here we have what i believe to be a rug tufting tool. It has patent dates of 1881 and 1888. It appears to have no damage and looks complete. In a remarkable state of preservation for a tool well over 100 years old. There is no company name which i can find. It looks as though it has a clear (slightly yellow) lacquer finish which is about 90% intact. There are a couple of small rust spots, but nothing which could not be cleaned in 10 minutes with the appropriate abrasive. I will not attempt this and the purchaser may be assured that it is 100% "as found" with no cleaning done. Please examine the photos carefully. If you need a more detailed photo please email me. because i do not know how to use this tool, i can not warranty its functionality.
