rolling pin

Baker's wooden rolling pin made of a sphere of brown wood hollowed through and inserted with a shaft of tapering wood to form handles. The thinnest end of the handle has an incised groove running circumferentially around it and a piece of string for suspension. The sphere is closer to the thicker end of the handle than to the thinner.
