Victorian/early 20th century miniature ships wheel
This miniature painted mahogany and brass ships wheel dates from the late Victorian period or early 20th century.
This craftsman made wheel is only 25.5cms from opposing spoke ends and is in VG patinated condition.
It is probably a scale model of a wheel from a larger vessel which the owner either made or had made as a momento of the vessel.
A most unusual and decorative piece of treen.
