Antique Scottish Mauchline Ware Cotton Thread Holder Scenes Of Stirling Castle For Sale
Features three photographic scenes:
"STIRLING CASTLE FROM SOUTH WEST" "STIRLING CASTLE FROM THE BACK WALK" "CAMBUSKENNETH ABBEY, STIRLING"
Stirling Castle, dating from early 12th century, is one of the largest and most important castles in Scotland.It is surrounded on three sides by steep cliffs, giving it a strong defensive position. Its strategic location, guarding what was until the 1890s the farthest downstream crossing of the River Forth, has made it an important fortification from the earliest times. Several Scottish Kings and Queens have been crowned at Stirling Castle, including Mary, Queen of Scots, in 1542
Cambuskenneth Abbey, founded byKing David I around the year of 1140, is a ruined Augustinian monastery located on the River Forth near Stirling. Dedicated to the Virgin Mary, it was initially known as the Abbey of St Mary of Stirling, or simply Stirling Abbey. The road between Stirling Castle and the abbey is St. Mary's Wynd
The reel case stands approximately 2¼" (58 mm) high and measures 3⅜" (85 mm) diameter
The box, complete with tightly fitting lid, is in good condition commensurate with age, save for some marks on, and around, Cambuckenneth Abbey as can be seen from the photos below
It would make a fine addition to any Mauchline Ware or sewing collection
