This specific spinning wheel comes from an old farm, it is a monument/museum these days. I think there are probably some wheels there left. The old lady bought this spinning wheel from, had lived in the farm when she was young and took this spinning wheel with her when leaving the farm, when growing older.

well kept, and can keep producing on and on, when it is in caring hands
