A solid oak vintage flight propeller, with a metal trim.
At one time flight was all about wood and canvas, and even bamboo. A local cabinetmaker busy with the fuselage, a cane weaver making a cockpit fauteuil. Flight was accomplished with basically one handle to pull and a couple of gauges to check. No GPS yet. Visual sighting by identifying roads and churches. Aficionados of our amazing assortment of early flight artifacts will welcome a new and enticing metal clad propeller replica. Dating back to a time when pioneers conquered the air. Hand sculpted in wood, distressed and finished in an aged, smooth patina.
