This stunning wall mounted piece of industrial history was sourced from a textile mill in the North of France. Originally there would have been long lines of these racks holding 1000s of bobbins to be used in making carpets. The bobbins themselves date from 1900 – 1940. All natural dyes hence the beautiful and subtle colours. http://www.lorfordsantiques.com/product/WD386291-french-bobbin-rack
