Yuyang,  an intern in Brent Museum and Archive in London has asked for our help to identify a wooden “something” found in the store of their learning room.




The object is  about 1m long, and a little bit light to its size.

Thank you so much for your help!
I am going to finish my intern this weekend, so if anyone knows what is it, please contact to the leaning officer Jana? her email is:

my initial thought was that this item is a 'home-made' device for winding string/wool onto (figure of eight fashion) for storage purposes.

Looks like a distaff, of a kind found in various parts of Eastern Europe.
