Unusual and Unique! This drop spindle design stems from the use of a 1950's Made in Germany 400 Day Schmidt Contessa Anniversary Clock porcelain over cast copper clock dial. The delicately hand painted porcelain over cast copper dial has been preserved with a top coat of heavy duty epoxy resin and it is mounted to a nickel plated brass bezel, a 1.75" vintage brass clock gear - then all of it is mounted onto an Emerald Green Steel Shaft - along with two large steel gears and silver plated and stainless steel findings. This is an awesome spinning mid to heavy weight drop spindle.
The shaft is made from high carbon (spring) steel with a forged hook that has a 2-part powder coat paint finish applied for a beautiful look and feel. All components are assembled with an industrial 2-part epoxy glue.
