This beautiful wide silver filigree bangle is a rare example of a quality silk or wool holder. It is made of two hinged moon-shaped sections and at the bottom is a short but wide bar going to a large silver hook. The major section could therefore be worn over the wrist and the hook attached to a ball of thread (wool or silk). It is interesting to note that on the Continent, these were called “tangle holders”. Another style suspended a silver or metal ball into which the ball of thread could be placed (see two examples currently listed on my site). The filigree work is very intricate as can be seen in the images, and at the top there is a plaque with a monogram which is slightly rubbed. The overall condition of this fascinating item is very good for age and it would make a beautiful addition to a collection of general needlework tools or one specifically related to the long and esteemed craft of knitting. Total length including hook 6.25 ins (15.8cm). Internal dimension of bangle 3.4 ins (8.5cm) x 3 ins (7.5cm). Weight 30 grams. This item appears in my book, “Antique Boxes, Inside and Out” on page 302. Insured Air Mail Post with tracking to the USA would be $46.50 USD - with no tracking is cheaper.
