Second Status: One blade tip has been scratched and some blue paint is missing (see photo). On the back and edge of the propellers that are some dings and indentation of the wood so color is not consistant. (see photo).
Description: This WW I style Wood Propeller with blue tips, medium size, is styled after early day propellers similar to the ones used on the Nieuport, Spad or Jenny aircraft. We are often asked about the different color on the propeller tips. Propeller tip color was used to alert folks nearby that the propeller was rotating and to steer clear. Barnstormer pilots often used even more color to make their plane more noticeable to potential passengers. Nicks and dings have been added to the aged birch wood propeller adding to the authentic, vintage look. The wood has also been hand distressed and hand rubbed providing for an attractive, rich finish.
The 47 inch propeller, size in length, is a good dimension to display on airplane themed bedroom walls, playrooms, or dens. This decorative airplane propeller also makes a fantastic focal point.
