This handsome sewing antique would have stood on a table, gently unspooling thread as required as the stitcher applied herself to her work.
Of European origin, it consists of three distinct pieces – the dark wood base which is fitted with a steel rod, the reel with its ends created from alternating colour blocks, and the pretty acorn finial that screws into the top of the rod to hold everything in place.
It stands about 5 ¼ inches high and the base has a diameter of .2 ½ inches.
Generally in good condition for its age with a few minor blemishes consistent with it having seen a fair amount of use. The acorn finial does not screw as tightly onto the rod tip as it once did but it holds well when a small scrap of fabric (as seen in the images) is caught under the base of the acorn).
