Spinning Wheels in Belozersk Museum Collection
Talking about wooden household items and tools, mostly spinning wheels have come down to us. The spinning wheel was a constant accessory in the life of a Russian woman – from youth to old age. A lot of heartfelt warmth was put in its artistic design. Very often a spinning wheel was made by a young master for his bride. And then, not only skill and talent, but also all those lofty thoughts and aspirations, dreams of beauty that youth is capable of, were put while decorating this item, which the guy brought to his betrothed as a sign of love and respect.
