Victorian Wood Lace Bobbin Turned Treen Antique Beads Spangles English 1870
This is an antique lace making bobbin of turned wood or treen with antique glass beads made in the area of Bedford, England n the East Midlands during the mid Victorian era of1850-1870s.
The lace making bobbin for so called pillow lace or cushion lace making is made of Mahogany and measures 4.5 inches long.
The antique glass bead spangles are a brown, green and white round swirl bead, 2 rounded square textured pink beads, 4 flat round clear textured beads and a copper ornament with rings, that I don't know the use for.
The beads are old and hand made glass and the bobbin is beautifully turned with a remnant of thread still attached. Lovely!
