CLOCK IN AIRPLANE PROPELLER’S CENTER

SKU: 14-312

$1,195.00

Today we offer a rather unusual piece. It is constructed from pieces of a propeller. The main piece is the propeller’s center, including the hub. The main piece measures 15 ½” x 8″ x 4 ½.” A circular brass disc measures 6 ½” in diameter. Six large bolts appear on the disc. In the center of the disc is a space that measures 2 ½” in diameter. Inside this space a small alarm clock has been installed that measures 2 3/4″ in diameter. The central portion of the display rests on four pieces of propeller that have been fashioned into legs. These four legs are in turn attached to the base, which is also a part of a propeller. The stand is 15 ½” x 5 1/4″ x 3/4.” On the stand, the propeller display is 15 3/4″ tall. It is a rather impressive piece. The graining to the various parts of the propeller that have been glued together is quite handsome. The alarm clock does tick when I wind it. I am unable to set it, however. Thus, we must consider this a static display, unless the new owner wants to tinker with the eliciting clock or replace it with another. In a manner of speaking, this might be considered an offshoot of trench art. That said, it is VERY unusual to see such a large piece like this. It is very striking to look at. For you aviation collectors, it is a nifty piece.
