Favourite Item
A rare large spinning top in solid boxwood, with grooves for the string. Similar items had faceted numbered sides for children's games and were known as teetotems. These were considered very difficult to spin and therefore it was considered in the Victorian times a skill. Children were often allowed to play with it on a Sunday.
