A Rare and Unusual Mother of Pearl 19th Century Fish Thread Winder
A Rare and Unusual 19th Fish Thread Winder
What a rare little character this is. A little mother of pearl thread winder in the shape of a fish, he looks like a flounder to me. The detail and care with which this little winder has been made is amazing. He has a face and gills and scales all over his body and a tail. The main body has been made from darker shell and the luminosity is wonderful, there is lighter shell around the edge to high the body.
The winder measures 2" across and the body has a depth of 1.75".
As previously mentioned this little fellow is very rare so please do not miss out on this one.
