Description
A very crude home made lace loom. There is a flat board as a base with two square wooden pieces standing at each end, in the corners, with round dowel roller beams between them supported through holes at the centre of each side piece. The front has a narrow board nailed between the two square pieces, and the back has a wire mesh screen panel to act as the reed. An ecru linen thread warp is wound on a back roller, passes through holes in the screen, and is placed in tension (maintained by nails through rollers). The lace, woven with threaded needles, has been wound on a forward roller as it was completed. There are strips of elastic and cotton around the middle of the loom (to help with tension?).
