Description

A super stylish (and weighty) vintage Robert Welch nut cracker, from the Hobart range.

The Hobart Nutcracker is an original Robert Welch design from 1964. This is a much older vintage version, probably 1960s/1970s, with its original vintage Design Centre London sticker and felt protective feet to the base. It is still available today as part of the Legacy Collection, celebrating 60 years of design from Welch's workshop at Chipping Campden (today's retail price is £34, but why buy new?).

Made from solid cast iron, coloured matte black, with a steel spindle. It uses a simple wind up and down mechanism. Height is 150mm (when fully wound down), width is 132mm across the top handle. 180cm tall when fully wound out. Weighs 1.35kg.

Good vintage condition. Fully functional and an iconic design. On close inspection (last two photos) you can see a natural patina/aging to the black and steel - this could be treated or re-coated with know-how - but I love it as it is showing its age!

Why buy new when you can buy original vintage?!
