Weaver's creel for holding spools. Sindall's Silk Trimming factory was established in Dalston in 1864. During the early 20th century, the company became one of London's last surviving manufacturers of silk cord and braids. This creel was used by the weavers for holding spools of yarn. Spools are set on removable metal rods which slot into frame in preparation for unwinding the yarn. The creel has trough-like base in which spools are stored.
