Collection of old spools of cotton cord carpet thread in shades of brown, tan, antique rose - there are twelve tall cone spools in this lot. The whole lot is shown in the first photo.
The thread is a heavy crochet cotton thread or package tying string weight with a lovely luster (pearl cotton type) finish. It's very spotted from age and soil, but would make antique style thread for primitive crafts, ornament hangers, tying tags etc.. It seems supple, and very strong.
Some are full or nearly full spools, some are mostly used spools. It's all on heavy cardboard cones, most about 7" tall. The spools make wonderful primitive display pieces just as they are!
