Spinner Table Clock
- 13 X 6 inches
- Cast aluminum, iron stand
Set on a matte black iron base, the Spinner clock is cast from a 1930s airscrew, or propeller. The center hub section houses a vintage dial as the clock face, giving this sleek and shiny modern-looking clock a retro feel. It’s a fabulous eye-catching piece for a desk, countertop, or mantle.
