    Reproduction without a doubt. The Olszewski spinner gives it away without a second glance, but even without it doesn't have the right multi-part construction of the originals.

    Hello Adrian and welcome to the forum. This is a modern copy. The maker is Zygmunt Olszewski, who may still be in business in Warsaw.

    Regards,

    Cross-posting . . . Brandon beat me to the punch. I was trying to determine if Mr. Olszewski is still in business. It appears that someone may have bought out his operation - ??
