Harrington Gemina

From the same Magda Works at Walton-on-Thames that gave birth to the Omnia came the Harrington Gemina, a reel whose name was rendered in relief on the backplate.  This example was found at a Car Boot Sale close to Walton-On-Thames.  It weighs 10oz 5drms, has a fine cork arbor and a diamond shaped check spring.  On its foot is stamped the legend 'Made in England'.
