CPW Canadian Production Wheel

I purchased a Canadian Production Wheel (thank you Craig’s list) yesterday. I am posting photos in hopes of identifying the wheel. It appears it may be a Cadorettte, cousin to the Hyacinthe spinning wheel. I plan to restore the wheel to a working spinning wheel. The photos below are of the wheel as found. The wheel had been on display at the home of a local couple for some twenty years. They knew none of the history of the wheel, only that they had purchased it from an antique shop in Sarasota, Florida. There are no markings on the wheel that I can find.

Lots of photos HERE

    How beautiful and elegant this wheel is, yet clearly made to spin not just to be an ornament. I hope the restoration goes well.

    I have a spinning exactly like this one, it is in pristine condition, so is all original and you can still read St Jerome on the table portion with the date of 1883. Some of the other words are difficult to read but I am working on that. The original cord that winds around the wheel and other pieces is included. Do you have any idea what the value of these are? Appreciate any information you can give.

    I can’t say as to value, but encourage you to go to CPW group on http://Ravelry.com/ If you’re not a Ravelry member, join; it’s free to join and members at “cpw-lovers” can give you a better idea of the value. If you’re looking to sell, you are likely to find a buyer there as well.
