Rolling pins are used to shape and flatten dough and most functional rolling pins were made of wood, but glass, ceramic, stainless steel, marble and plastic examples have also been made. The collectable type of rolling pins were made in brightly coloured glass by Nailsea and other manufacturers, especially in opaque white, purple and blue. They were sold at markets and fairs, often painted with amorous pledges or as holiday souvenirs, and were probably never used for rolling dough. Examples that come up for sale often have a cord attached to each handle so they can be hung on the wall.
