WWI Era Laminated Wood Propeller
Measuring approximately 9 feet in length, this laminated mahogany propeller has an approximately 9 3/4" hub thickness and approximately 10" hub diameter. A decal with intertwined "CPB" monogram, probably a maker’s label, is mounted to one end of the propeller. The side of the hub is stamped: "N 108 / D 235 / P 223". All eight bolt holes have been filled. A modest amount of chipping is along the edges, otherwise the propeller is in very good condition. Original varnish, showing wear and crackling. Perfect decoration for the aviation enthusiast’s Man Cave. From the collection of Dr. Douglas Harman.
