Chinese Mother of Pearl FishThread Winder
This is a beautiful Chinese mother of pearl fish threadwinder. This antique silk thread winder was made from Chinese mother-of-pearl in Canton around 1840.
These 'winders' were originally counters for card players and were part of a much larger set. It became fashionable for European ladies to use these counters to wind their silks on.
This fish winder has a pair of billing birds on one side and delicately carved scales on the other side. The mother-of-pearl is of excellent quality. This winder is 5 cm long and 1.5 cm at its widest point.
These are delightful and useful items and make great gifts for others or for yourself! The winders are beautifully packaged in a black velvet hard case lined with white and showing The Silk Mill logo.
