As the Victorian cotton and woolen mills closed throughout the industrial North of England and Scotland over the last 40 years the antique wooden bobbins and shuttles left behind have been transformed into original wooden items.
These unique gifts stand the test of time and will conjure up for decades to come their past, each and every time they are viewed or handled.
Substantial for its size, this timer has pewter accents on the spindles and a warm, rich finish. As with all antique and hand-made items, the colors and decorations vary. We consider this to be a special part of their history and character. Makes a wonderful vessel to hold sand from a memorable vacation or in a wedding sand ceremony!
