This is an antique thread winder probably from the Victorian times. The engraving is superb. The subject of the engraving is that of a village with people and houses with trees, flowers and birds.
The border is intricately pierced, and on one side there are gold initials of the original owner, beautiful calligraphic script.
Unfortunately one corner of the piece is missing but because of its beauty I thought it was worth listing here as is with the price adjusted accordingly.
The size is 2.25 inch by 23mm (1 inch is 25mm).
