Leclerc
Spinning Wheel
History


As far as we can tell, Leclerc Spinning Wheels were manufactered and sold from 1969 to 1998. We believe that this was not continious as they do not appear in some of the 1980 catalogs.

Leclerc made a large (22 inch) and small (15 3/4 inch) wheel. It looks like there were at least 3 main versions of the large wheel that can be easily identified by the shape of the legs. These are pictured below (click to enlarge picture).

Note that Leclerc stopped making these Spinning Wheels over a decade ago and unfortunately does not have any repair parts for them.


The small wheel appears to be made in a single style show below (click to enlarge picture):


Below are the dates that we believe Leclerc made these wheels. This is based on catalogs and price lists. Because we do not have a complete sets of these for every year we have estimated some dates as noted in the comments section.
