Product Description

Authentic early 20th century eight spoke ship's helm wheel constructed primarily of oak and mahogany with an iron hub and keyway attachment and cover. This ship's wheel features eight sausage-and-ring-turned spokes with blocked ends, a design fashioned after American & English lathe-turned furniture such as chairs and table legs and stretchers produced in the 18th and early 19th century. Numerous screws secure the outer wood sections. The wheel hub is secured on each side with secondary plates. Retains an old, worn dark oak finish and survives with a few wood shrinkage cracks.  Measures 46 inches in diameter overall.
