15 Pictures of Vintage Thread Spools

Vintage thread spools have a unique beauty. The fact that they’re wooden, and come in many different sizes and shapes make them feel less commercial than modern plastic thread spools. Knowing they’re 50 to 100 years old also adds to their charm, and you can’t help but imagine your grandmother as a young woman sewing clothes for her new family. Thankfully many of the spools have survived, and now make for very interesting still life photographs.
