Louet spinners are like dogs when meeting a new wheel:

they’re think quirky appearances are a-do-ra-ble!
And you know what? Lout spinners can’t wait to topple these guys over. To nuzzle their bellies I presume.
Sooner or later, every Louet spinner turns over her wheel. Because there’s info to be found at the bottom of a vintage Louet spinning wheel!
There might be a stamp to tell you how old it is.
Let’s have a look at my Hatbox:
This one was manufactured in January of 1979. One of the very first to be manufactured!
Still going strong. Small and has not aged at all!
I feel very much the proud puppy momma 🙂
