Welcome a New Member!
Thanks to a longtime friend, Nora…I now can add this beauty to my collection of spinning wheels!
Actually, even though, it has fully articulated wheel, treadle and distaff, this is just a beautiful little miniature pencil sharpener.
I have to admit, I see a lot of schlocky things made to look like spinning wheels (tabletop planters are the most common) and I usually think they’re done really badly. But this little item is awesome and done extremely well. I don’t often have the opportunity to sharpen pencils, but I’ll love having this fine object adorn my work area.
It’s nice being known as the guy who appreciates fiber-related items!
The Old Shale Wrap is looking fantastic and moving along.
