Lovely antique (1845-1860) German (probably Dusseldorf) double flyer parlor wheel for sale. This type of wheel was typically given as a wedding present to a new bride, and the story that came with this wheel when I got it was that it was given to a countess. It has the initials "A.H." on the table. Dark wood, with bone or ivory decorations. Excellent condition, completely functional. Come with two original bobbins, plus 4 more that I had made for it.
I bought this wheel in 2010 from a collector and tuned it up for spinning myself, but just have never used it. Am now downsizing, and this wheel should go to someone who will use it. Asking $1500.
It should probably not be shipped, but sent via the antique wheel railroad. I am willing to drive up to two hours from Baton Rouge, LA to deliver. Contact me for more pictures or questions.
