Beautifully Carved 19th Century Korean Wood Spool (Silpae) for winding and unwinding thread for embroidery and sewing. It is covered with lovingly carved chrysanthemums, whose many petals were a symbol of fertility. This is a great example of the love and care that went into the design of an everyday object that was dear to the lady of a 19th Korean home. It has a beautiful patina from many years of adoring use. 5 x 2 inches, 13 x 5 cm.
