Ingeniously designed and upcycled in the UK by master craftsmen this FREE-STANDING KITCHEN ROLL holder has been created from a vintage pewter shielded bobbin and a distaff has been used for the upright part of the holder.
The WOODEN KITCHEN ROLL HOLDER measures approx. 34cm (H) | 13.5 inches (H) however as each piece is unique there will be some variations in size. The free-standing roll holder protects the bottom of your kitchen roll from absorbing dirt or unwanted liquids
The Kitchen roll holder WEIGHS approx. 200g so is VERY STURDY and will keep your kitchen roll safe from being knocked over, the kitchen roll holder is a convenient way to store your kitchen roll and keep it close to hand, we have also seen these used in bathrooms as a toilet roll holder.
A distaff was a staff for holding the flax, tow, or wool in the spinning process, A distaff was designed to hold the unspun fibres, keeping them untangled and thus easing the spinning process. It was most frequently used to hold flax, and sometimes wool.
As the Victorian Cotton and Woollen Mills closed throughout the industrial North of England and Scotland Bobbins, distaffs and shoe lasts were collected and preserved, over the past 40 years these have been transformed into historic artefacts.
