Aircraft Generator Propeller
This example unusually comes with its original pine box (lacking lid). The propeller is larger than those we normally see with a diameter of 61cm (24"). It carries original stencilling to one blade, reading 247 and embossed on the hub with the letter E. It is reputed to be of the type used on airships and the flat pitch of the blades would seem to support this. Manufactured in hardwood, it has a lovely patina and in excellent conditon with just a tiny chip to one blade end.
