Add a rare piece of history to your collection with this Sandow's Spring Dumb Bell, made in 1899!

"The regular use of Sandow's Grip Dumb-Bells will supply every organ and muscle of the body with that gentle exercise which is so necessary to the human system. This exercise will, in a short time, give permanent relief to all those complaints which are caused by any failure of -- or defect in -- the muscular system, resulting from a sedentary life."...... These are the opening lines of the instructions that accompanied the original Sandow's Spring Grip Dumb-Bells.

Eugen Sandow was famous for his physique and how he flexed his muscles. He created the Spring Grip Dumb-Bells to help others achieve and maintain strength.

This Spring Grip Dumbbell is the Gentlemen's version - including nickel-plated, leather cloth covered handles with 7 springs. It weighs about 3 pounds.

A similar dumbbell can be found in the York Barbell Museum - but now you can own your own!

Makes a unique gift for a guy!

This 113 year old dumbbell is in remarkable shape for its age. The metal has an aged patina, as shown. The leather on the hand grip is in good condition, with only a small lifted portion (as shown in the last photo). The springs are tight and secure and work with ease. Please use the Zoom tool to get a close up view of this item.
