Jacob Grimm and Wilhelm Grimm
was once a poor Miller who had a beautiful daughter, and one
day, having to go to speak with the King, he said, in order
to make himself appear of consequence, that he had a daughter
who could spin straw into gold. The King was very fond of
gold, and thought to himself, That is an art which would
please me very well; and so he said to the Miller, If
your daughter is so very clever, bring her to the castle in
the morning, and I will put her to the proof.
soon as she arrived the King led her into a chamber which
was full of straw; and, giving her a wheel and a reel, he
said, Now set yourself to work, and if you have not
spun this straw into gold by an early hour to-morrow, you
must die. With these words he shut the room door, and
left the maiden alone.
she sat for a long time, thinking how to save her life; for
she understood nothing of the art whereby straw might be spun
into gold; and her perplexity increased more and more, till
at last she began to weep. All at once the door opened, and
in stepped a little Man, who said, Good evening, fair
maiden; why do you weep so sore? Ah, she
replied, I must spin this straw into gold, and I am
sure I do not know how.
little Man asked, What will you give me if I spin it
necklace, said the maiden.
Dwarf took it, placed himself in front of the wheel, and whirr,
whirr, whirr, three times round, and the bobbin was full.
Then he set up another, and whir, whir, whir, thrice round
antiqued paper is delicately laced with a subtle hint of gold
in the creases creating an almost magical look. (Although
its difficult to catch with a camera, you can see in
the image below how the shimmering is caught in the light)
