Two exciting treats have arrived from Italy for the season and, truly, for all year round. First is a wall clock created by Giovanni from rims he made as a teenager during WWII at the d'Allesandro rim company in Milan. These 20" tubular rims bear d"Allesandro decals, have 24 holes, and make perfect clock frames!
A timeless time piece.
We have only found 80 such rims so that is the clock series. Each one is hand assembled with a very nice German Quartz movement, signed and numbered by Giovanni himself. It's a warm and beautiful timepiece that will bring you much pleasure in the years to come.
Signed and numbered. Just add battery.
As a special for the year end, we're offering them for $62, a very reasonable price for such rare hand work. A functional collectible.
The second item is a small number of keyrings fashioned from wood rim sections. I carry one every day. Better (and swifter) than a rabbit foot charm, these fobs are a perfect reminder of the golden age of cycling. Each is labeled with a branded firemark. Just $9.00 each.
We received very few of these items, so please treat yourself without delay!
Of course, best wishes for the season from the Cermenati and Hjertberg families!
