Hallo,
I know it's very diffcult, but could someone identify this prop blade? It was painted post war. So modern painting but blade is original.
Whas it from a four or two bladed prop?
Thx

'Morning Geertse,

Paintings such as this are usually attributed to an antique dealer in the Portobello Road in London ( a street of antique dealers ). He was active around the 1970-80's. His work was always attractive, although his aircraft were often artistic rather than accurate representations.

Please let us know if there is a signature which can be read. I'd like to know more about him.

I do not know what aircraft the prop was made for, but I would add that the artwork is a valid part of the propeller's history and should be preserved.

With kind regards,

Bob

Excellent news, G. I've been waiting at least ten years to discover his name.

Many thanks,

Bob
