Mexican Colonial Pine Spinning Wheel

Ref: C-77-0017

This primitive wheel has some surprising elements. It is hand-driven with an iron handle, on a stout wheel that is decoratively hand carved on the radii and inner wheel. At the center of the base is a nicely shaped well for the fiber, which feeds through a carved structure that acts as both the maidens and bobbin. The base terminates on stylized, paw feet. It is a wonderful, primitive accessory.

18th/19th century
