Antique Primitive 1-Piece Wooden Wool Carding Comb, 19th Century, Original Dry, Worn Patina


Here's an exceptional, primitive, antique wool carding comb in excellent, well-preserved condition! Hewn, carved and crafted from a single piece of wood, it has a crude design and lots of character. This comb dates back to the 1800s and saw plenty of use back in its time, yet it remains in exceptional shape. It has 25 wooden teeth which saw lots of rigorous work. It was found right out of an old barn and has a beautiful, dry, untouched, patina that's shows plenty of age and wear. You can still see lots of carving marks all over this early textile tool. The coloring is superb, and its overall look is fabulous.

This comb measures 15 inches high, 10 1/4 inches wide and it has a thickness that ranges from 1/2 inch to just 1/8 inch. Of course, the dimensions vary a bit depending where taken, again due to the primitive nature of this piece. There are no active termites, woodworms or problems with dry rot. This is a great item to display just about anywhere. Whether you are a fiber enthusiast, a collector of country antiques, or just someone looking for a unique item to decorate your home, this carding comb is very nice find. We do not sell reproductions! Authenticity guaranteed. Quick shipping from Buffalo, NY! Don't miss out!
