Antique French Fruit Wood Lace Bobbin.
Early 20th century or late 19th century wooden pillow-lace bobbin. Bobbin measures 123 cm long. A lace bobbin, from the Le Puy en Valey region of France. Made in what is probably a fruit wood (maybe olive), it has the bulbous end typical of a French lace bobbin - this end was in effect the weight, which dangled from the “cushion” on which the lace was worked. There are some natural flaws in the wood of the weigh, but this would not affect performance. Priced accordingly. Otherwise excellent condition.
