Spinning wheel

Photochrom print of an elderly Irish woman at a spinning wheel, ca 1890-1900.
Very similar to one we use as decoration in our living room, although I suppose most spinning wheels are basically identical in design.

Found at Sharp as Teeth and Stars.

Update: Different types of spinning wheels are depicted at The Woolery. A tip of the hat to kateohkatie.


  1. Not really ;-)

    This is a modern one which I'm pining for:

    Different types of wheels:

    Some do look similar, yeah, but some look reallllly unique too.

  2. The mechanics are all basically the same, but the design can vary widely.

    Me? I have a Louet S51 double treadle.
