This is a late 18th/early 19th century whale end tape loom with an in-period make-do repair.  Given the material, time, and effort to make a good tape loom, when the bottom of the frame on this one broke, it was repaired with a hand-wrought staple.  The shafts are chamfered and in tact.  It has its old stained and varnished surface. Dimensions:  8" x 18".
