This vintage darning mushroom has a sterling handle and a turned wood work surface. Darners such as this usually have an egg shaped darning surface. This mushroom shape is unusual, but very practical for working on smaller items or sewing in confined work areas. The handle is handsomely decorated as is stamped "925 RFOG". We could not identify the maker. The darner measures approximately 4 1/2" in overall length and the mushroom head is approximately 1 7/8" across.
