Authentic Heavy Bronze / Brass Vintage Ship's Whee
A Very Substantial & Rare Circa 1900's Ship or Tugboat Wheel. <br /><br />Extreme Patina still intact, it is believed to be that of solid cast bronze or brass. Very old piece!<br /><br />There are a total of 6 Spokes, each measuring approximately 8 inches from center hub to tip of the handle. The overall wheel measures approx. 19 inches in diameter and weighs approx. 15 lbs, and this is without packaging and shipping box. I am sorry to report there is no Mfg Name or Number present. Would be interesting to know more detail on such a piece.<br /><br />Condition Report: Good condition with wear consistent with said years in service. Shows scratches, tiny dents and a great deal of genuine patina. Some small scuff areas where it appears the bronze or brass really shines through. Selling this item just as was stored in our museum display over the years. It would be most interesting to see what one might be able to do further with it's appearance.<br /><br />Wonderful Collector's Piece!! Would make for a very unique and special gift...or addition to any true nautical decor.
