Sleeping-Beauty-Stick-01.jpg

Carved and Lead Inlayed Hand Spinning Pole
Date: 1847
PRICE: $ 1,250
Dimensions: H 175 cm Dm. 28 cm

Beautifully carved and inlayed with lead. A real luxurious spinning pole made of fruitwood.

This is the kind of ancient spinning device the sleeping beauty pricked herself on.

There are two different dates on the pole. At the base it has 1842 engraved but the lead inlay halfway reads 1855.
This lead inlay also has the letters NNBI on them. The base of the pole is made heavier with pieces of lead to make it more solid while turning it over to spin the wool. 

Altogether this is a monumental decorative item.
