Propellers are a great accessory for a man’s cave, den, bar or anywhere else. Collected for almost a century, wooden propellers from early airplanes continue to fetch high prices at auctions. AM propellers are beautiful and quirky home décor, combining antique finishes with touches of the originals: tin blades, stamped serial numbers and the occasional addition such as a clock.
The Sopwith was the mainstay fighter-plane of the British and USA air forces in the early 1900s. Brightly painted in various national colors, it ruled the skies for a number of years. Some of the propellers were later supplied by an American propeller maker.
Admire the shape and finish of a wood creation that once propelled daring aviators over uncharted landscapes. Feel the smooth somewhat distressed, honey surface. The punched serial numbers around the hub. The authentic 1930s maker’s decal. Picture it in a bar or a boy’s room, a corner of the living room or a restaurant! And experience the thrill and adventure of early flight.
