A Bobbin Winder & Collection of Bobbins

When once the lace-making trade was vibrant in England these labour-saving devices were made in large numbers to help lace-makers wind thread onto bobbins – which were generally adorned with decorative beads of glass etc (known as spangles) their purpose to give weight and stability to the bobbins while being worked.

This particular winder has a wonderfully charactered Chestnut wheel of great colour with an Oak drawer to its base, and comes together with an interesting collection of 34 spangled bobbins of various periods – some quite remarkable.
