Wooden Cotton Reel in Contrast to My Favourite Green Basket

I suppose this looks a little like a pimple on a pumpkin,
but I love this colour green,
these timber cotton reels are so useful and interesting.
The empty reels make great knobs for doors or draws
and don't forget the traditional French Knitting!!
This wooden reel has on its label
'Machine Embroidery Number 30' and is 'ANCHOR' brand
with its beautiful soft vintage pink thread still wound around it.
An example of a useful,
original piece of Depression Furniture
made from these type of timber cotton reels
available for purchase at Heaths Old Wares Bangalow.
