Needle Mould (2)
For needles used in handframes.
Art work details
Each handframe had its own mould for casting the needles into leads. The inside of the mould was blackened with soot from a buring candle prior to a mixture of molten lead and tin being poured in. Needles were placed into the molten metal. The leads were used to hold a frame's needles in place.
