A rare 18th century knitting sheath all carved from one piece of fruitwood. Fabulously made chain with hook to bottom for supporting the knitting, two balls and cages, chip carved work, moving ring. The top has a small hole for fine knitting. Great colour and patina. It measures 42cm long when extended. A wonderful piece of 18th century antique treen.
