Spinning a yarn

Picked this up this morning on our usual rounds of the 2nd hand markets and just had to buy it, why? well it’s just got that “feel” about it.
A bobbin winder, that is it’s name and purpose, and this one is well worn, Swedish made it was originally used for winding thread on to bobbins, I looked in to their history and didn’t find that much other than there are plenty around mostly selling on Ebay and apparently they are most often used nowadays as ornaments in Swedish peoples summer houses! I think we will put it next to our other Swedish-made-clamp-to-a-table item which you probably recall.
