Folk Art Propeller
WW1 era
Markings:  None
Comments:  This is NOT a propeller used on a Sopwith Camel.  It is almost certainly a pre-WW1 propeller that was removed from an aircraft (there are "witness marks" indicating mounting on a hub) and subsequently painted with Sopwith Camel imagery, most likely during WW1.  The size, shape, type of wood, hub drilling and general condition are all consistent with a very early usage with an unknown engine, typical of early aircraft development.  The tips are hand-painted with equisite detail.  Considering its age the propeller is in excellent condition as folk art.

Wood:  Likely pine
Length: 5 feet, 6 inches
