I thought this lovely old darning ball needed a spot to sit, so am including a sweet old turned wood cup as a freebie. The ball is beautifully crafted of a light and darker wood, and I think may be German, 1920s-1940s or so. The turned blonde wood cup may be older. A pretty pair to set somewhere to admire if not to put the ball to use mending a sock now and then.
The ball measures 2 1/4" across. The cup is 2" tall x 2 3/8" wide. The ball is in overall good condition with some scratches and one patch of roughness and discoloration--see all photos. The cup shows some age and a bit of dryness to the wood, but no cracks or splits.
