M-YS001 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.

Donate to support the Antique Pattern Library project to pay for such things as database and website development, web hosting costs, data entry, scanning equipment, and help us meet the public funding ratio, which allows us to keep our nonprofit status, making your donations tax-deductible, depending on where you live and on the local tax laws and tax treaties.
If you can’t afford to give anything, which also happens in these difficult times, introducing the Library to people who don’t know of it yet, is very useful, since it broadens our user base and therefore also our donor base.
Also, when shopping on Amazon, you can set New Media Arts as your preferred charity for Amazon Smile. They give us some money for every sale via that channel.
