Antique Iron Carpet Comb

Carpet combs like this antique piece have been used for millenia in the weaving of carpets.  The comb is held with the tines facing forward, and is used to tap the weft down on the warp strings of the carpet.   Made of solid iron, and featuring a hand-carved handle, our vintage carpet combs are as sturdy as they are visually-interesting.  Definitely interesting enough to just sit alone on the shelf, we've also used them as "props" for all sorts of things.  Balance a small painting on the handle.  Place it on your desk, and slip  your business cards into the slots.  Let your imagination be your guide!
