Here is a treasure found recently.
It is a German postcard of a
sweet young girl who is spoolknitting.

The postcard is dated 1929.

I have tried to get a good close-up of the spoolknitter
but due to the quality of the postcard, this is
the best I can do. I can make out that it has
knobby nails and not staples for posts.
It is definitely not a Spear's company produced
knitting Nancy.
It may be a strickliesel (knitting doll) from
the toy making region of Erzgebirge in
If anyone knows anything about
this type of strickliesel, I would love to hear
from you!
