Circa - 1950s (Design First Registered in 1948)
Construction - Bakelite
Country of Origin - England
Dimensions - 3.75" in height (4.25" in diameter at base)
Weight - 93g
Condition - The Wool/String Holder is in Very Good Used Condition though it has had an extra hole added to the underside... possibly so that it could be used with two balls of wool at the same time (please refer to photos).
Other Interesting Points - This rather nice Bakelite Container was produced to hold wool and comes complete with it's original plastic hanging strap...this was so that while being used for knitting the holder could be held on the wrist to keep the wool clean and tidy whilst working...it could also be used to hang the container whilst not in use.
The container unscrews at the base so that a ball of wool/string could be placed within and then pushed through the hole for use...this lovely item will be equally at home in the work room or Kitchen and possibly has far more uses...
