No artifact of the past symbolizes antiques like the spinning wheel. Once found in virtually every household, these tools of the past are increasingly difficult to find. Approximately 19 inches wide and 35 inches to the top of the finial, the wheel, base, legs and pedestal are all decorated in a yellow floral design with green leaves. The base of the legs and the wheel have some damage most likely related to years of use by an early homemaker. Parts still move as in yesteryear but you would most likely need resources on how to spin your yarn. This particular size, according to literature, was used to spin flax and the finer types of fibers.
