I made it over, slightly after the dedication, to see the brand spanking new Spinnradl in Pendleton. What's a spinnradl you ask? Well, the shape looks kind of like a giant parking meter but the base is decorated in Rookwood tiles with different themes relating to the cultural history of Cincinnati and the top looks like a glass box that houses a musical device similar to those found in a jewelry box. There is a small turning crank toward the bottom that you can turn to play a simple melody. It's pretty cool and I've definitely never seen anything like it. There are two in Pendleton! If you click here you can read a bit more about the design and development of the spinnradl. My apologies for not taking a picture of the entire spinnradl, but below are the top and bottom.
