800th Anniversary of Magna Carta
A new addition to our commemorative bobbin range - a bobbin to commemorate the 800th anniversary of the sealing of Magna Carta - the first formal charter stating tht a King had to follow the laws of the land and agreed by King John of England at Runnymede, near Windsor, on 15 June 1215.
Our painter has painted a bobbin to remember this important occasion in our history. The bobbin features a scroll complete with a seal set against a castle theme background.
The inscription on the bobbin reads:
15 June 2015
Available in East Midlands (shown) or Honiton format in wood or bone (East Midlands only).
The East Midlands style bobbin has a matching spangle, which features a painted bottom bead.
The photograph shows the design on wood - a bone option is also available
