A Christmas tree bobbin (used in many shuttles during weaving) doesn’t need to be decorated just for Christmas! This large lady bug found just the right place to settle in, with a backdrop of red berries, a pine cone, a red acorn and some greenery! I am not sure if this spool is a replica or possibly new old stock (purchased long ago but never used). Either way, it is a sweet addition to a shadow box, small shelf or tiny corner of any flat surface! The patina on the bobbin is beautiful and there is just a bit of dark green thread wound around the bottom to give it some contrast. Definitely unique! It measures approximately 6″ tall.
