Product Description

Functional wood carved weaving heddle pulley
Small wooden weaving utensils are made by many African tribal people who also weave. Heddle pulleys are one category of collectible carvings.

This heddle pulley measures about 8 inches long and 3 inches across the fork. It is all natural wood and has a full 3-dimensional carved head. Tribal origin Baule, Ivory Coast, western Africa. Shows normal wear from usage and handling, with some soil in the grooves and a short split below the neck. This split penetrates about one-half inch. There is a similar short crack in the side of the head. I have not attempted to clean or do any repairs, so this object is in "as found" condition.
