Default Estate find . Curtiss?

Looks to be two Curtiss R4 propellers turned in to a stand.
With a 10” early brass Chelsea clock. Age unknown. Beautiful work.

It looks as if the blades were connected with dowels through the hub and then it was turned as a bowl. I wonder how they did that, because usually the base of the bowl is used to secure it to a face plate with screws then that piece (with drill holes) is sacrificed after the bowl itself is completed.

Thank you for showing us. It is quite the most astonishing use of old propellers that I have seen. Superb workmanship.

With kind regards,

Bob

Thanks, I love it. I haven’t decided to keep it or sell it.

My advice is keep it. It is unique and beautiful. If you sell it, all you'll get is a few dollars. And if you keep it, you can always sell it in the future. But don't sell it now. Enjoy it!

With kind regards,

Bob
