Bone Inscribed




Something rare and special.  Each bobbin has an inscription that reads top to bottom spiraling around the shank of the bobbin.  The top bobbin has each word differentiated by black and red letters.

The bottom bobbin starts with 3 pictured hearts and then the inscription.  Note the misspelling of the word "meet" and use of the word "fayre" which typically means beautiful.
