Authentic eight-spoke ship's wheel from the mid-20th century, made completely of teak with inlaid brass trim-ring on both sides. The solid teak baluster-style spokes feature flattened ball and multiple ring turnings, and the wheel retains an old varnished finish and rich teak patina. The hub is solid cast brass. Measures 42 inches from spoke to spoke. Comes with a custom made wall bracket made for the wheel display long ago that fits through the keyhole and fastened with a large brass nut.
The interior image is from a working tugboat using a similar wheel to the one shown for sale.
