Name: Two Bobbin Shuttle
This is a lightly used, two-bobbin shuttle used in Lao floor looms. It has a smooth finish from being used. This shuttle style has holes on one side of the bobbin holes to hold the bobbin in place and two holes on all three short ends for the bobbin points to stick - it appears the two different holes allow for bobbins of varying volumes of thread to be used, or, the higher holes were too high for use. A lovely shape that could be used to suspend a dowel to hang a narrow textile.
Size: 21.25 in. x 1.5 in.
