I've just got a new - 2nd hand - spinning wheel. From a shop where they could tell me nothing about it - hehe, not even if it's working or decorative. I do believe it's a 'real" one. Not antique, it's wooden and obviously made not long ago and not as a DIY project, one can say the wood was worked on a contemporary wood-turning lathe. But it was lacking the strap. Since I have no idea what brand or anything it is... I wonder if I can do anything else for finding a correct one (beside somehow making something - well, making my hubby make something - from some straps he can find...).
