Lovely Spinning Wheel

I saw a lovely spinning wheel the other day at Gates Antiques. If you can go see it, I encourage you to do so. Will do your heart good to know someone spun on such a wheel.

The wood was in gorgeous condition. There was a delicate cage-shaped distaff that charmed me. The spinning wheel was quite tall, with a castle orientation to the whole thing where the wheel sat above the bobbin.

They had some other spinning wheels in various stages of disassembly at the very back of one of the outbuildings, in case you are in the mood to entertain thoughts of rescue and restoration.
