The combination of copper wire with the cobalt / indigo blue of the spool is just incredible. If you didn’t plan to use the wire in your jewelry making or other art, this would make a beautiful industrial décor or studio/workspace piece.

The wire is a bit heavy and could be 18 gauge. I didn’t unwind the wire to measure how much is left on the spool, but you might be able to estimate if it is enough for your projects from close-ups of the photos. The wire is brighter and cleaner with less discoloration on one side of the spool where it is more tightly wound. The wire that is looser on the other side of the spool, where the end piece is located, is tarnished and has a grayish patina.

The spool looks to have been made from plywood-type, layered veneers. There are nails holding it together, and staples and remnants of paper and old writing on it, and drill holes and chunks of missing pieces. One side (top or bottom) has more of the cobalt/indigo paint finish remaining than the other.

Charmed yet? Frankly I was, at first sight. It’s going to be hard to let this go, but it is time for this piece to have a new home.

Dimensions:
5-1/2” tall
6” diameter round ends
2” diameter center stem
