Tatting shuttles

I have not done any tatting for months although still knitting and sorting out ideas for the next Craft Evening in three weeks time.  A surprise phone call today meant that I was given some tatting shuttles which otherwise would have probably been thrown away!  They were from a friend whose mother had died, just wonder how many shuttles are disposed of, especially when relatives of deceased loved ones do not know what they are.  I was just fortunate because my friend knew I tatted but had no idea that these were the shuttles used for the craft!

Included are my favourites the aero shuttles, one has not got a bobbin, but that is no problem as I have hundreds in my house!  Two Susan Bates, one Milward and a cute little one made out of bone?
