S/4240 Antique Treen 19th Century Mahogany Knitting Sheath

A good mahogany long forked knitting sheath, which we can identify as being from Clapham in North West Yorkshire, having a square section carved with hearts and lozenges and the name Ann Roberts. The needle end has a square brass cap and the lower section of the shaft is divided into a long fork cut parallel with the face, with a slightly shorter front prong, both with a rounded end. The whole retains a patination.
