Antique Wooden Spool Bobbin Candlesticks

Currently offered for auction – pair of original authentic vintage wooden spool bobbin candlesticks.  Origin New England.

These are among the last of the wooden spools once found in spinning mills throughout New England.  There they were used in making wool into yarn and thread.  Made by hand from hardwood.  Approximately a half century old, these old beauties have made countless miles of yarn and both feature wonderful rich warm aged patina.
