French Antique Flax Spinning Wheel, Mugwort

$90.00

 
France, 1880’s, one of my most favorite discoveries, the French Antique Flax Spinning Wheel. You typically find smaller, thinner spindles, these are rare with wider fan-like wheels.

The lighter aged wood is gorgeous on Mugwort, coupled with the shape & pattern of the steel, its a piece of art that would look stunning on a wall.
 
Dimensions: 22″ Circumference

History Tidbit; 
The wheel was used to spin flax into linen for use in textiles. Spinning is the act of drawing out a few fibers and twisting them together to form a yarn. The process predates written history, and was first done by hand and with sticks.
