4. Antique Spinning Wheel

Dryad type wheel in working order, with Lazy Kate containing 2 spare bobbins (though one is damaged and the other may not fit well).  This wheel is stamped "London School of Weaving, Bryanston St. W1" and is thought may be one of the wheels made by injured ex-servicemen returning from the Great War.  It seems to be designed to spin warp threads because of the small orifice and double drive.  It spins easily, tight and fine.  The flyer has 7 hooks.
