A gorgeous set of five antique French wooden bobbins or spools with silk thread from the 19th century.
I live in the Cevennes, a national park in the South of France. This region of France was extremely famous for its production and manufacturing of the natural silk from the 17th - 20th century. Now that the industry has moved abroad what is left are only traces of those glorious times as this marvelous collection of five wooden bobbins with silk threads of the finest quality.
This set contains multi coloured silk threads (in shades of orange and blue). They are on wooden spools each measuring approximately 10.5 x 4.8cm or about 4.1 x 1.8 inches. In great antique condition with minor signs of aging that in my opinion makes them look even more magnificent (please refer to the images).
