Turkish Tapestry Loom Model
Small model of a tapestry loom, probably made for the tourist trade or as advertisment item. It has a seating bench in the front, two lease sticks, and a bar that holds balls of wool in the required colors, as well as part of a tapestry. The tensioning mechanism is made of metal and consists of a ring around the cloth beam, a spike through the warp beam and a metal rod with a tightening screw halfway.
