Antique Primitive Folk Art Russian Distaff - Early 1900's

Price: $60.00

We are so excited to be offering a genuine antique primitive folk art Russian distaff - called a 'Pryalka' in Russian. We purchased it from a very reliable European antique dealer. The distaff is used when spinning yarn. The bottom piece was sat upon with the paddle to the woman's left or right with the raw wool or flax placed on the teeth as they spun it into yarn or cord. It was often given as a wedding gift in Northern Russian. All hand-painted - dated from early 1900's.
Measures 32 inches tall with paddle measuring 9 inches across.
This is a real treasure!
