Oral history is that lacemaking started many centuries ago and made its way to the UK before the industrial revolution. Started there as a craft where men, women, and children did the work to supplement the family income. Later women and children worked the craft until it was more economical to procuce it by machine. Workers personalized their bobbins by adding beads for weight and by carving some to designate certain designs. These bobbins originated in the Northamptonshire area of England. There are 12 different bobbins in this lot; 4 beaded ones and 8 carved ones along with 2 Pattern Prickings which were used to create designs. Beaded bobbins are 4 3/4"h and plain ones are 4"h.
