Hand Blown Glass Darning Eggs or Balls late 19th early 20th century.

A pair of darning eggs. Interior pontil marks. Ex Paul Albright collection Waterloo County (a collector of rare tools of all kinds). The handle would be held in the left hand, and the ball slipped under the area to be darned, with the fabric stretched smoothly, but not tightly, over it.
