The asymmetric design leads us to assume that this was gilded in Spain, however we have been unable to locate any bobbin stems produced by the manufactory. On balance they are most probably Bohemian and documented bobbin stems attributed to Bohemian manufacture date from the late 18th century.

The lack of uniformity in the stems is most noticeable, both the size of each ball knop and the spacing.The pucella marks or tooling marks are most pronounced
