Cherry Reproduction Loom
This is a reproduction box loom from the 18th century. She measures 17" long x7.75" wide x17" tall.
There is only one of these looms available and is made from Cherry. The loom you see in the pictures (not warped) is the loom that you are purchasing and it is hand made loom and has a poly finish. The heddle that is included is a 37 dent heddle. This loom is made so the heddles can be removed and different dent/patterns will be available so you can update your new loom anytime you choose. The heddle design on this loom is fashioned after an 18th century backstrap heddle and I just loved the design so I used it on his set of box looms I've made. The loom only option comes with one sword sami gepha shuttle. The warped cherry is not the loom your are purchasing and is just for demonstration and not included.
Choose just the loom with one shuttle or you can add the weaving tools you see in the pictures for an additional 50.00 ($140.00 worth of tools).
This loom is after a circa 1780 example in the collections of the Hershey Museum of American Life in Hershey, Pennsylvania. Most were unpainted, but several decorated looms have been found in Pennsylvania. Many unpainted heddles found in other areas have incised or chip-carved designs.
