Wimshurst Spark Generator (1800s)

Wimshurst Spark Generator (1800s)
The photos tell it all. This is a spectacular Wimshurst generator from the 1800s. It measures 40" long! It has a beautiful tiger stripe oak cabinet with superb fittings. A large salt container is shown for size comparison. These were used to make large and powerful static electricity sparks. From the length of the sliding brass rod this one should make big sparks! It was used for electricity research before radio was invented. Nothing is broken though one disk is a bit loose and the nut needs tightening. I won't ship due to all the glass but am happy to hold it for pick up for several months if needed (it is located near Spartanburg, SC). You won't find another like this! Very impressive in person!  $1,100.00. (1160051)
