SOLD * Big Amish Puzzle Ball c1900
A large Amish puzzle ball, it is made of blue linen that has faded overall to a very pale, soft blue. What we love most about this ball is the charming feather stitching that surrounds each panel. The wool offers wonderful contrast to the fabric, and is unfaded. It retains its original strong, deep turquoise color.
This ball, compared to our other Amish puzzle ball, is larger, older and has seen more action. It is full of pins and old pin holes and shows mild attic surface. Some of the old pinholes have tiny rust dots. That being said, the fabric has no rips, tears, holes other than the anticipated pinholes, and it also has an attractive traditional weave. The top of the ball has its original celluloid hanging loop. Approximately 5" diameter. SOLD
