A Finnish Spinning Wheel!


Of course, it would certainly help to have a Finnish spinning wheel to spin the Finnsheep wool on. At some point it its life, this wheel was stripped of its original dark green or black paint. Everything about it is ornamented with beautiful turnings.

Talking about a Finnish Spinning wheel, I think I've inherited quite a beauty. The date on it it 1877 and the detail is quite alot greater than this picture. My Mom was Finnish.

Hello!! I sure hope you get this message.
I'm writing in regard to the post after this; about the spinning wheel by Joel Baldwin. I was wondering if he had stamped it. I recently bought a spinning wheel from an antique shop, and I'm a little curious about the origins. Could you please describe the signature?
If you can email me, I'm at stellaorenda@hotmail.com. Thanks!
