Airscrew Weybridge Mounted propeller Display

A very attractive display board featuring the central section of an original propeller featuring a transfer indicating manufactured by the Airscrew Co & Jicwood Ltd, Weybridge. Whilst the Airscrew Company was formed in 1923 the subsidiary Jicwood was not established until 1938, so the propeller was clearly manufactured on or after this date. Stamped on the hub is the code WT U765 T28 and above the serial number 768. If any visitors can help with an ID to the aircraft type it relates to we will add information to our description. The hub is fitted with a metal spinner finished in the colours of an RAF roundel. Mounted above the propeller is an original Royal Flying Corps trench art brass ashtray which is finely engraved with an RFC pilots brevet. The display is completed with a framed photograph depicting a rather bent WW1/1920’s period biplane with the registration code K- 1505 clearly showing on tail and fuselage. Clearly the various parts displayed have all originated from different sources but has resulted in a very effective aviation themed collage. The propeller relic measures 25.5” (64 cm) and the grey painted wooden display board is 20” from top to bottom (51 cm.)
