the item depicted is a swift , not a distaff. the give away is that it's made to turn. a distaff is a sationary holder for fiber. It can take many forms and sizes and can be made to free stand or be held or mounted on a wheel or even sat on .. simp;le or ornate it is not a item with movment. As a spinner and weaver of long experiance this one is mislabled but a very nice item.. Distaffs are a favorite item of make of mine.os far I've made 4 of them.
