Stunning Inlaid Tatting Shuttle

A lovely black lacquer tatting shuttle inlaid with a charming design of colored pieces of abalone shell and gold colored wire. The points are tight and it is wound with tatting thread ready for use. T is a small chip on the edge of the plain undecorated back of the shuttle. You can see it in the last photo, but is is not visible from the front and does not affect the usefulness of the shuttle.
