2 Vintage Bobbins - OOAK S178
2 beautiful old bobbins that bring a bit of textile history to your home or studio.
These old bobbins were formerly used in a New England weaving mill to produce silks and other fine cloth. Today they're great to decorate your flat and studio, store all your ribbons, twines and yarns etc.
All of these bobbins have embossings on the both disks - letters as well as a "rippling" texture. The disks themselves are black with blue traces of paint as seen on the picture as well as embossing by the now-closed EASTMAN throwing mill.
