Which is which?


Which is the real maiden and which is the repro? Fred was asked to recreate the missing maiden. It took a couple of tries, but the results were worth it.

The maidens are from a lovely Scandinavian wheel owned by a Ravelry member of the antique spinning wheels group.

Wow. I thought, the left one. Then I thought, no, the right one.

Then I thought, it doesn't matter, they're both awesome.

Well done!

Amazing work! I cannot tell which one is which--they both shine ;-)

Such a lovely wheel, so good that it will be up and working again!

Wow, that's lovely!

I just bought an antique wheel, in honor of my grandmother, and hope to get it working.
