Beautifully Carved 19th Century Korean Wood Spool (Silpae) for winding and unwinding thread for embroidery and sewing. It is meticulously carved with very creative geometrically designed chrysanthemums, whose many petals are an ancient symbol of fertility in Korea. It also is carved with the character for people. 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. 7.5 x 2.5 inches, 19 x 6.5 cm.
