Spinning Wheel

Terry69June 14, 2012

I was looking at spinning wheels for my wife and came across a used wheel. It has V Tomasli Lande Norway on it. I am not able to find anything on this wheel on the internet. Does anyone have any information on the wheel, or where I may find the information.

Tomasli is a surname. Lande is a Village in Norway. It could have been the person who made it, or even the person who owned it. I am not aware if it is a brand name. Be careful buying used wheels for use. Often bits and pieces are missing on them, and would be difficult to replace and unless you purchase it from someone who actually spins, they may not be very up on what they're supposed to look like. Newer wheels in consignment shops are pretty common in Europe.......where there's sheep, there is wool. ;-)

To Terry69:

I have a spinning wheel made in Norway by V. Tomasli in approximately 1968 to 1970. It was only used briefly in a spinning class about that time so is just like new - one of the crafts I decided not to pursue. I cannot remember what I paid for it and am trying to find out what it is worth. If you like I can post a photo.
