Hand-made replica of WWI propeller. This propeller is hand sculpted in wood, distressed and finished in an aged, smooth patina. This propeller is a fun and fascinating decor object. Mounted on a wall or just leaning in a corner, WWI propeller replica is a conversation piece. The typical WWI flying ace was accustomed to wrecking a plane now and then.
Wood propellers used to be replaced as often as tires. Old ones were usually taken home and hung over the mantel. Mechanics, pilots, flight-crew. They wore propeller tiepins and badges and transformed propellers into memorabilia. A continuation of a flight-tradition.
