Stang Top and Shoe
A hand-forged stang top and shoe to complete your staff.
This round embroidered fabric badge features magical symbols in black on a white background.
It is based on a needlepoint talisman in the Museum’s collection, which was made by Mrs A Dodsworth in the 1960s.
The design is taken from the 18th century book of magic ‘The Black Pullet’, and the talisman is said to “give the possessor all the talents and knowledge of every art”.
The badge is approximately 7.5cm (3″) diameter, and can be ironed or stitched onto your bag or clothes.
