Wooden Airplane Propeller with French Finish
Dimensions: 73.2" length x 6" width x 3.5'' deep
This propeller has a beautiful golden color. French finishing is a technique that results in a very high gloss surface, with a deep color.
The tapering ends elegantly swoop out in a proper aerodynamic shape.
Fun and fascinating home décor. Wood propellers used to be replaced as often as tires. Old ones were usually taken home, completed with a clock, and hung over the mantel.
Mechanics, pilots, and flight-crews wore propeller tiepins and badges and transformed propellers into memorabilia. A continuation of a flight-tradition… Solid wood replica of propellers used in the early days of flight. Hardware from the original propellers has been carefully reproduced in brass and antiqued.
Makes for fun decor and a wonderful conversation piece.
Mounting bracket is included.
