Vintage Charkha Spinning Wheel on Stand From India, Home Decor Accent, Upcycled
The charkha is important in Indian symbolism, was made famous by Gandhi and is a centerpiece in the Indian flag.
I have several pieces in stock. All of them are have little variances as these are original upcycled pieces. In general, the wood spinning wheel measures 20" - 21" in diameter with an overall height of 29" - 31" (measuring the height of the spinning wheel on the stand.)
Each piece is made from wood and banded steel. The piece is permanently fixed to a steel stand.
We hand picked the spinning wheels which are at least 25 years old and are actual former spinning wheels. They are not reproductions. After we picked the spinning wheels, we had them mounted to the stand using the small metal shop we work with in Jodhpur, Rajasthan. The type of wood is not known, but could be seesham or mango.
Item on stand is 12 - 14 lbs.
The pieces are designed for interiors, but there's no reason that it could not make an awesome piece of garden art. The wood will hold up and the steel bands will develop a rusty finish over time.
Need more photos or have questions, please send me a message and we'd be happy to assist.
