Two sterling silver tatting shuttles were gifted on Christmas day, 1918:
The last initial is the same on both shuttles, which leads me to believe that these were given to two sisters. I wish I knew the story behind them. I purchased these on eBay in 2012, the year that I learned how to tat.
The first one reads "FEC 12-25-'18"
The second shuttle reads "M.W.C. 12-25-'18"
I thought these would be interesting to post today. Merry Christmas everyone!
