Nicknamed “spinning jenny”, could this be the most energetic doll in the world?
An amusing sight in her wonderful balloon dress. Her jaunty hat is poised aloft her own elaborately turned display stand apparently content to simply be admired. However she has a secret? Remove the base to expose a holding rod entwined with a thread, that with a swift pull and release, allows for a most impressive pivot!
Completely hand made from pine wood, this traditional german spinning top figure, originating from the Ertzeburger region, is a beautiful replica of examples dating back to an earlier period. Artisan made the structure and stand are hand cut and turned on a lathe. Once assembled this ingenious model is delicately hand-painted and although it follows a historical folk aesthetic the finished effect being both attractive and humorous is surprisingly modern.
Like a moving sculpture this spinning top is a must for toy collectors and art lovers alike.
