French Pillow Lace Bobbin.
Early 20th century or late 19th century wooden pillow lace bobbin, from France. Bobbin measures 10.85 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. Bobbin still has thread around it. Excellent condition.
