This is a very nice antique darning egg with an ornate repousse handle and an ebonized wood egg. Darning eggs were used to repair holes in stockings or socks. It is marked Sterling on the handle although the mark is somewhat blurred from use.
It measures about 6 inches in length and it is in very good condition.
