Hand crafted in the mid 1930s from laminated mahogany planks, this British propeller boasts a 6.5-foot diameter and blades pitched at 4.58 feet.

Original markings to the central boss reveal it was designed to be paired with a Gipsy Major engine, used in a variety of 1930s light aircraft including the de Havilland DH.82 Tiger Moth.

Dimensions: 198 cm/78 inches (length) x 22.5 cm/8⅞ inches (width) x 12.75 cm/5 inches (thick).

A decorative brass plate graces the central boss, the blades subtly dipping towards it in a fashion unusual for 1930s examples. Riveted copper adorns the blades to add durability.

The de Havilland Gipsy Major was a four cylinder, air-cooled inline engine first built in 1932. 14,615 were produced in total and many still power vintage aircraft around the world today.
