This is my shuttle collection. There are a few interesting ones. I like to tat with the marbleized plastic ones the best. I don't know if there are any valuable shuttles in this lot but they are all special to me. I like to look at the abalone shell shuttles because they are so pretty. I also like the carved bone and horn shuttles but they are not old. I love my David Reed Smith shuttle made from curly maple with my name engraved on it. He does great work!
The other day a shuttle sold for over $300 on ebay. Incredible.
Lately I've been tatting with my own ceramic shuttles, they have a nice feel in the hands.
