Lot of 7 vintage wooden bobbins, for lacemaking. All have “spangles”, made with a variety of beads (wood, glass, MOP, etc). It is my understanding that lace bobbins are spangled, as a lacemaker’s preference, to prevent individual bobbins from rolling around on a bobbin lace pillow. Good overall condition, with minimal, if any, signs of age/wear. They measure about 4.75″ in length, including the spangles.
