Antique Timepiece (Steampunk) - ONE OF A KIND - (Tahkli Style) Support Spindle No.79
BRIEFLY: Made from a total of 12 individual parts - this is a Ladies Size Circa-1870 Made in England - Sterling Silver and 18kt Gold Pocket Watch Dial mounted to a acrylic disc + 3 Antique Brass Clock Gears for a Whorl, and a stainless steel hex nut and Gold Plated Brass Bead - mounted to a Metallic Champagne Steel Shaft.
WEIGHT/DIMENSIONS: 1.1 oz. (32g), Whorl dia. 1.49” x 8" Length (38mm x 20.3cm),
This is the Smaller Diameter (of the 2 that I make) Shaft = .107" (2.7mm) Shaft in Metallic Champagne
A Circa 1870 (Made in England) Sterling Silver pocket watch dial is the centerpiece of this spindle. The dial had a layer of heavy patina and was lathe turned and polished to reveal the 18kt gold Roman numerals and floral perimeter design relief, and the gorgeous etching in the center - leaving some patina for contrast - then coated in a thick layer of epoxy resin to protect it and create a no-snag lifetime finish. It is mounted to a whorl made from 3 antique brass clock gears and a 1/8" thick acrylic disc - and all is mounted on one of my signature powder-coat painted (in Metallic Champagne) steel shafts. This is a light to medium weight Tahkli Support Spindle that has an amazing fast and long spin.
The shaft is made from spring steel with a heat forged hook and is colored with a 2-coat hi-temperature powder-coat paint. Dial is coated with 2 extra thick layers of epoxy and all parts are mounted with industrial 2-part epoxy.
NO-HOOK OPTION: Leave me a Note in the "Special Instructions for Seller" Box at Check-out :-) - Pre-made spindle; Removes 1/2" of shaft length
