home - sales - SEW BLANK - Rare armorial silkwinder (SEW10)

Rare armorial silkwinder (SEW10)             £ 75
SOLD Chinese snowflake silk-winders were popular purchases for the very rich around 1800 - but very few were produced with family crests. This one has the crest of a mermaid ( probably waiting to lead some poor, unsuspecting sailor astray!). And to make it even more special there were two sizes of winder produced. A very special order from Canton. This one in the slightly smaller size.
