Two Shuttles for the weaving of narrow fabrics, such as ribbons, patentee Archibald Turner, 1858, unknown maker.
Shuttles patented by Archibald Turner in 1858. This shuttle is for use with very narrow pieces such as ribbons. The shuttle is shaped at its base with grooves so as to fit in the battens on the base of the loom. This increased bearing surface and secure fit allowed the shuttle to be shortened more easily than with an ordinary loom.
