Description

This is one of a set of three spindles, each of a light natural colored wood.

2007.3504.01 is a rod of wood, tapered sharply at one end and more gradually at the other. The sharply tapered end has a groove, and then the rod comes to a point. There is a pink band at the groove, pink and light blue bands at the widest spot, and a light blue band at the opposite end.
