It looks like a vicious version of a tracing wheel!
oooh, you may have to send it in to the collectors....
Hiya JackieI may be wrong but I think it is used for lace making or french knitting, and when you turn the knob it releases the cottons....I think :o))It is kinda like the collectors isn't it ?Good luck, let me know the answer.XO

Ooh, ooh I knew that Jackie!! Just too late to get in before Chris! lol.I've actually got one that I've had since I was in my twenties I suppose, or even earlier. Wow! a very long time ago! My sister and I used to make raffia flowers with them. It was when girls would make plaited raffia lengths to wear like sole-less thongs, and then add the flower to the top so that they sat on the toes. Did you do this or was it all a dream??!! lol. Talk about a flower child!!!!! x
