An original two-bladed brass-edged wooden propeller from a De Havilland Gipsy VI, retro fitted with a mid 20th century timepiece clock.
The Gipsy VI was used on light sports aircraft from the 1930s including the de Havilland Moths. The base of the hub is mounted with a brass plate stamped ‘DRG No DH 5238/F/9 GIPSY VI LH’ and ‘D6 75 P6 3 JUNE 35 AC 38149’.
The blades are brass edged on the leading side for protection. The laminated wood has been polished, and the propeller blades remains in very good original condition.
The mid 20th century clock has been retro fitted into the hub. It has an English made electro-magnetic movement, powered by a standard battery.
The clock has matching black steel hands to the cream opainted dial. The movement is to be overhauled and will be guaranteed for 3 years.
