The Beautiful Egg Mill
By gently pulling and releasing the string wrapped up in “the mill” (the oval egg shaped part of this toy), in a continuous manner, you will easily make the three propellers above the mill spin in a most marvellous manner. “Mills” such as these were very popular as early as the fifteenth century and are as intriguing to day as they were then.

Girls with Eggmill in center of photo
Note the girl on the Left with the Lentin Rattle. The one next to her has a small version of our Egg Mill, and the right one of the three has a Stick Horse (version that is a full horse on the end of a stick). The girl on the balcony has a tube in her mouth and is blowing bubbles that the others are catching.
