800th Anniversary of Magna Carta

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:

800th Anniversary

Magna Carta

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
