Default Baltic trip and St. Petersburg

Here are my Baltic pictures:

These are pictures of the "distaffs" that I saw in the Russian Museum:

John Howe has one of these. They're used in spinning flax into linen thread.
I also saw some in the Lithuanian National Museum in Vilnius, but no photos were allowed.
