Needlefelted Chickadee With Antique Thread Spool

Needlefelted Chickadee With Antique Thread Spool


This life-like needlefelted chickadee is fixed to a c.1895 antique spool of thread manufactured by the Glasgo Lace Thread Co. of Connecticut. The company was bought by the American Thread Co. in 1902. The thread and both labels are original and intact. The sweet little combination would make the perfect gift for a bird lover, antique collector, or sewing enthusiast. It adds a touch of old world charm to many places in the home; a window sill, sewing/craft studio, bookshelf, or mantle to name a few.

The chickadee is made from 100% wool built over a wire armature. The feet and legs are wool wrapped over wire and finished with bee's wax to create tiny talons. It measures 4 inches tall (bird and spool together). The bird is 4.25 inches from beak to tail tip.

This is not a toy. Keep out of reach of young children.
