‘Beatha (Life)’ 5000 year old Irish Bog Oak Rare Spinning Top by Cian Magill…

Enjoy the magic and wonder of this truly rare spinning top. The ‘Beatha (Life) Spinning Tops’ series is handmade in Galway, Ireland, by furniture designer-maker Cian Magill. Inspired by our native Irish ancestry, these stunning and unique spinning tops are the perfect gift for lovers of all things rare.

Enriched in Irish history, this one-time series is crafted from an Irish Oak tree that lay in our turf (peat) bogs for thousands of years.

Grain details combine beautiful dark brown to jet black patterns. The wood has essentially been ‘ebonised’ over thousands of years by the anaerobic conditions of our bogs.

From an ancient Ireland to a handcrafted creation, you can now bring this piece to life! Simply picture the faces of your loved ones as they enjoy these bewildering toys.

Very limited stock due to rareness of material. Size: 35mm high by 35mm round. All pieces come with original Magill Woodcraft packaging and a hand-turned Oak display/ spinning dish (as seen in photos) A short, personalised message of your choice is engraved underneath this dish. Simply fill out this text box upon your purchase.

    This top and the custom base Cian made are both absolutely BEAUTIFUL. I could not be happier with the finished product. It’s aesthetically gorgeous and it spins like a dream. It’s a tiny piece of history to hold in your hand. Love it! Thank you! – Emily Williams

    Sweet top. It has great proportions and I love the shape, size, and look of it. But the coolest thing about this top is that it’s made from fossilized bog oak — so unique! Wonderful handcrafted functional art in the form a spinning top.
