A fine version of the 19th century treen wool winder, commonly called a "swift". The mahogany circular base is deeply turned, from which rises a brass pole. The thin slats that make up the winding mechanism are attached to wooden rings, and rises up and down the pole. They are wood stained to match the mahogany base and finial. This is an elegant example of an antique swift, in excellent original condition.
