Antique Treen Knitting Sheath - Elaborately Carved

Status: This item has been sold
Sold by: Opus Antiques

This antique has been viewed 7 times in the past month with the most views from Singapore.


A very well patinated  19th century antique goose wing knitting sheath from Yorkshire.
Really elaborately decorated with dots and florals compared with most of this type which were plain.
The use of the stick “sheath” was to support a needle to work from during the process of knitting and for this purpose it had a hole in the end to receive the needle.”
The majority are of wood, and in many of these are the home-made gifts of young men to their sweethearts; such may be decorated with chip-carving, and bear initials and dates.
