VINTAGE STRING HOLDER ~ String has long been a household and office utility, but an easily tangled one. That's why generations of tinkerers devised cast-iron string holders and string reels in an attempt to keep string under control. The classic 19th-century string holder shape was a beehive. Other cast-iron string holders, some nickeled, others painted black, were more like egg-shaped cages w/openings on the side so the clerk can see if he/she was running out of string.
