THE CURTISS 1915 Wood Propeller 'Second' is a great looking propeller, however our seconds either have minimal imperfections, a poor finish or poor edging. If you're looking for a nice looking propeller and don't mind that it's not quite perfect, here's one at a great price. Most of our seconds have minor cracks. But since these are supposed to be replicas of 100 year old antique propellers (virtually all of which have similar cracks) for many customers these just add more to the authentic look.
While most of our authentic looking antique wood propeller replicas are scaled down considerably from the original, this gorgeous handmade mahogany 1915 Curtiss prop reproduction is almost identical in size to the one that inspired it.
The Curtiss Flying Boat was used by the US Navy during World War I and props like this were "pusher" props mounted on the back of wings and turned counter clockwise. Our replica antique is hand made of mahogany, one of our largest, heaviest and most realistic propellers we've ever made. Beautiful stained mahogany finish, curved scimitar shape and distressed brass style edgings make this look like an antique costing many thousands of dollars. Comes with mounting hardware for walls or can be "propped"vin the corner for a beautiful addition to any vintage room décor.
