Impressive Steampunk Bras Gauge with Gold Carved Wooden Wings

$450.00


This impressive Steampunk (retro-futurist) object comprises a 15 cm diameter face brass pressure gauge, surmounted by a pair of gilded carved wood wings. The whole is 116 cm long. The wings were from a department store Christmas window long ago, before everything became plastic*. We were able to assemble two of these, and they have been shop fittings for several years. At present we are offering only one, but if you need to buy the only two in existence, we might have our arms twisted.

*Plastic has been used to imitate other materials, as a cheap and often poor substitute, and I always prefer the real thing. However, I greatly appreciate plastic when it is honestly being itself, and is not in disguise as bronze, marble, wood, ivory, etc.
