For Comparisons Sake – Early American Spinning Wheels

Today is a kind  of rest  day for me but here are some links to wheels of different kinds that will give an idea as to how many types and differences there are.

I have put in my comments as to what seems to be the problems either with the wheel  or the seller not being familiar with the topic.

 These are all on eBay.

These are print postcard images from The Library of Congress. I find them very interesting and informative. Check out the other objects in the photograph for clues to age and  locale.

You can  also look under ‘spinning wheels in art” and you will find paintings with various spinning wheels in them too. Have fun! Test Your Sluething Skills – look for incongruities.
