She’s covered in years of grime and old shellac but she is in MINT condition and was obviously waiting for me to find her :) Or so I like to think.
Philias Cadorette made spinning wheels in St. Hyacinthe, Quebec from 1922 until the mid 1930’s. He took over his father’s (Michel Cadorette) business.
She spins perfectly and silently and I love her so much! Not that I could easily choose one to get rid of (should that come up) but this lady is definitely a keeper – the nicest spinner of them all.
I’m going to remove the old shellac and do my very best not to remove the makers mark! It’s a little scary, actually.
