The reed has two thin wooden slats on each side. Attached to them is four long wooden poles. They are attached by yarn wrapped around them and tied. In between the two poles on each side, there are thin wooden slats. These slats are held apart by yarn, which is wound around the two poles. This makes it so that each of the slats is a yarn's width apart. One side of the reed has a handwritten "EA" in curved letters.
The file this was found in labelled it as a part of a loom. Based on its looks, it appears to be a reed. Reeds are used to push weft yarn securely in place after it is woven and consists of vertical slits.
