50 Inch 1917 Mahogany and Brass Wood Propeller - Second


A FEW MINOR surface blemishes actually make this look even more like an antique, but we are offering it as a "Second" at a great price. This scaled down (50 inch long) version of an early wood airplane propeller was inspired by a 1917 beauty similar to ones built by the Hartzell Liberty Company -- which is still manufacturing props to this day. With all the looks and features of our larger props, our newest size fits almost anywhere in your home or office.

This WWI era style wooden prop replica features thin brass edging like some used by early aviators to protect their fragile propellers from rocks flung up on grass fields. We've hand "antiqued" the brass edges and hub to make our prop look like it's been in the rafters of an airplane hangar for nearly a century and then stained the hub area slightly darker to give that oil darkened effect.

Made in the Philippines of native mahogany, our vintage-style prop is smaller than the original, and we've changed the pitch slightly to make it show better when hung on your home or office wall. Our propellers come with hanging hardware and instructions, and can be hung vertically, horizontally or at an angle.
