A small teak Ship’s Wheel probably from a private yacht.
The wheel has 6 turned spokes and a brass cap to the centre. It also has 12 dome headed screws to each side both for construction and decoration. The wheel has a steel plate to the back and retains its turning mechanism so it can be fixed to a wall and will still spin.
The teak has a good weathered look to it without being too distressed. The brass cap and screws have taken on a good, dark patina. Mid to late 19th Century.
