The Sopwith was the mainstay fighter-plane of the British and USA air forces in the early 1900’s. Brightly painted in various national colors, it ruled the skies for a number of years. Some of the propellers were later supplied by an American propeller maker.
Admire the shape and finish of a wood creation that once propelled daring aviators over uncharted landscapes. Feel the smooth, somewhat distressed, honey surface. The punched serial numbers around the hub. The authentic 1930’s maker’s decal. Picture this propeller in a bar or a boy’s room, a corner of the living room or a restaurant!
