8 Handles Great Wood THE REAL THING FREE U.S. SHIPPING Auction Ending (Jul 10, 2014 19:38:01 PDT) http://yqz.me/ships_wheel
We found this buried in the back of an old estate here in Delaware. It is an eight spoke/handled wood and brass ships/captains wheel. This is the real thing, right down to the keyed shaft hole in the center, extremely heavy (over 30 pounds), it measures approx. 38″ across. Great patina, wear and tear from years of use. Our guess this is probably mid 1900’s, but don’t know.
