Item details

Vintage folk art carved wooden rooster sewing spool caddy with drawer. This wonderful old bird is hand made and hand painted. The rooster is white and red with black line accents and yellow beak. An opening on back of his head may have been a slot for scissors.

The stand is a box/drawer with an old glass knob handle. The drawer/base was white with black line accents and what looks like flower decals on each side.

The drawer is 5” X 9-3/8”. The total height of the caddy, from top of rooster to bottom of drawer, is 12-1/8”. I found some miscellaneous buttons, wooden spools, and some detached spool labels inside the drawer. These are going with!

The chippy paint is worn, and flaking. Some has some nice old crackling. Much of the paint is gone from the top of the platform. Decals (or possibly stenciled or painted) flowers along the sides are also flaking. There is much dinginess along top edges and in general, as well as dustiness and paint flakes. There is a piece of broken off wood inside the drawer which may be from the inner drawer area but doesn’t seem to affect sturdiness.

This is still a tough old bird ready to go to work.
