A lace bobbin is a small spindle on which thread is wound, used in the manufacture of lace. Though lace, and the tools for making it, date from the 16th Century [EB XVI:39], the lace bobbin itself doesn’t appear to have been used in period armory. The lace bobbin is palewise, handle to base, by Society default; when blazoned “proper”, the lace bobbin is brown, the color of wood. For related charges, see drop-spindle, quill of yarn. See also broach (embroiderer’s), spool of thread.
