This is a nice pair 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.
They measure approximately 9" tall x 3 1/4" in diameter at the base; they have a inner metal ring, and old wax drips.
It's rare to find two old industrial bobbins that match so well. A nice gift hat will add an industrial or rustic flair to any room.
