This spur distaff consists of a base with a disk at its end, a curved tilted leg with notches on its sides, and a carved openwork leg expanding upwards, or a “face”; the carved ornament is geometric. Typical for the Summer coast’s distaffs is a shallow, fine, and clear carving. A groove is carved in the blade’s lower part, to be inserted in the fork provided on the leg. The initials and date ИЕС 1862 are carved on the distaff. Abstract by O.G. Baranova
