Slinky, With Bristles

I just spotted this highly unusual object on 1st Dibs. California-based dealer, Coup d’Etat, describes the “Factory-made Slinky” as a "cylindrical bristle for industrial polishing. America, 20th Century."

The object is quite surprising and has me wondering if, perhaps, it represents a foray by Meret Oppenheim (of fur-teacup fame) into the world of industrial design.

The polisher is 24” high and has an 11” diameter. And, of course, I’m just dying to know if the bristles interfere with this slinky’s ability to “walk –the-stairs.”
