Popped this one out today, to add to several others over the last three years ,but never even a sniff of a crotal bell,which seems to be the norm for the north.
Love the twins though. :thumbsup:

Very nice patterned one there!

I suppose back when they were in use, they must have been very mundane, everyday objects but I never tire of finding them, even the plain ones...I would love to know how they were made as I have never seen the remains of a sprue or any casting seams on one...

Lovely designed one there Pete :thumbsup:
I was reading that the fancy design ones were used and made mainly into the post medieval era

But it goes to show that these weavers were the equivilent of todays mobile hairdressers

They would have their spinning gear with them at any opportunity in the fields or on their travels
The demand for cloth hasnt really gone away over the centurys :ugeek:
