This is a nice duo of wood textile mill bobbin spools. They most likely come from a New England woolen or cotton mill as this area was full of them up until the 1980s. Great rustic decor and a nice collection of industrial Americana. They make great candleholders or a nice shelf display on a bookcase.
The tallest measures approximately 8 1/4" tall and has a rustic patina with a metal end piece. The shorter spool is approximately 6 1/4" tall with dark wood, and a metal ringed exterior, ring is marked Dixons England
A nice way to start a collection or to decorate a room with great accents from the industrial era.
