Description
This is an antique rotary wrap reel machine. An English, brass and cast iron factory cotton skein winder by John Nesbitt of Manchester, dating to the late Victorian period, circa 1880. Presented in working order, this is a delightful example from Manchester's famous cotton industry. It displays a desirable aged patina and in very good showcase order. Superb material use, with bronze, brass, cast iron and mahogany. Wonderful golden tones, dark graphite hues and deep caramels to the plinth. Activated by a tactile wooden handle, the mechanism is geared to count a skein of cotton. Each skein is wound around the mechanism to 120 yards (110 meters), annotated on the dial. Upon each revolution of the dial, the hammer and bell mechanism chimes. Dial features the John Nesbitt maker's mark with the 42 Market Street address. This is a fascinating antique rotary wrap reel machine, presented in museum showcase condition; perfect for institutions or collectors with an interest in the cotton industry, especially within the Manchester heartland. In fully working order and captivating in its mechanism. Delivered waxed, polished and ready to enjoy. We offer a 100% satisfaction guarantee with all of our antiques.
