An ancient plaything updated for modern times with old-fashioned craftsmanship and timeless design. The rich ebony cone can be set spinning with the help of a string and a special handle. Wind the string around the spindle, then pull smartly. The high center of gravity helps the Spitzkegel top keep whirling long past what might be possible with simple finger spinning. The fat-bodied top is surprisingly graceful, defying gravity like a whirling black rhino on pointe. A collector's item, carved by a master artisan with over forty years of experience turning the finest tops in the world.
Measures approximately 1x2.5 in. Made in Germany.
