The spindle is called a distaff. As spinning was usually a task performed by women, the word distaff is now used to refer to women in general.

Thanks Guys
I thought it was (A drop spindle)
Learnt that from Romanian Postage Stamps.
just the stick like thing going to a blob of wool, makes no sense.
Just bad engraving perhaps.

Nicest example I found (support spindle) was by this lovely Navajo woman.

the woman in the stamp has a classic antique Greek style.(spinning the universe)So could be a symbol of a thread spinner found in many cultures.

Fascinating hypothesis,
Spinning the universe, I like that.

Wynchombe (England) received a message from that spinning,
a message that took 4.67 Billion years to arrive, at their front driveway.

Actually, started before our solar system coalesced, not before the start of the universe. :)
