Cod. 50164
The bulk of the fibers to be spun was placed on the distaff (that is missing here). The rove, going through a sort of fork, called winglet, received the revolutions and was wound on a spindle, placed in the centre of the winglet. The object documents the diffusion of domestic spinning in middle and upper classes at the beginning of the Nineteenth century.
