I am a spinner. I always keep an eye for antique french spindles for my own collection, but I also share some of the spindles from the lots I buy...
I have been told this kind of spindles look like Himalyan ones!!! yet they do come from france, although they didn't seem to be the most popular shape (it's only the second lot I see of this kind) it measures about 30 cm long (12') and measures about 3 cm ( over 1') at its widest point.
It comes from France, but I don't have any other details as to area or age.
Made from wood. Still in its "juice", could use a good wash.
In vintage condition.. Several bug holes , and one round thing that looks like a nail/metal piece ?One crack along thinner end, towards spiral. Oh yes, there is a spiral on this one ! :-) And it's totally intact !!!!! :-D
I tried to photograph it accurately, feel free to click on pictures to get the full size.
More spindles to be listed very soon, keep looking !
Shipping is higher than would usually be applied to such a light item but I will pack it well to ensure it comes to you in good shape, and that means more weight in packaging ! CCheck my feedback to see what previous buyers said about vintage spindles they bought from me. And see my store policies as well :-)
