Large Gaming Wheel

$1,750.00 USD

This wheel stands 40" tall with a wheel diameter of 26".  The wheel is all wood- hub, spokes and rim, with early wire nails for the pins.  The wheel is mounted to a wooden shaft on a wooden base with three hand wrought iron braces.

The surface is a red wash with black painted accents.  The numbers, 1 to 72, are hand painted in black in an old style.

This wheel has evidence in the base that it was screwed to a table or stand.  The construction and materials suggest a date of late 19th Century to early 20th Century.

The condition is very good, having the original, un-retouched surface.  The base had split and was repaired with two battens nailed to the top.  These have been removed and a new sub-base applied to better preserve the original look.  The indicator was missing and has been replaced with a strip of tin plate.

It is getting more difficult to find early wheels like this in such good condition.
