Click on the photo for additional views of this antique brass ship propeller.
An original brass ship propeller is always a great find, especially if it is in brass. This maritime ship propeller is solid brass and measures about 16 inches in total diameter. And it measures 8 inches from the center of the hub to the edges of the blades. The hub is 1 3/4 inches in diameter, and 3 1/4 inches from front to back. This original brass ship propeller weighs just over 8 pounds. We have not found any marks to identify its maker.
Simply speaking, a maritime propeller is made up of sections of helicoidal surfaces which act together ‘screwing’ through the water (hence the common reference to marine propellers as “screws”). Three, four, or five blades are most common in marine propellers, although designs which are intended to operate at reduced noise will have more blades. The blades are attached to a boss, or hub, which should be as small as the needs of strength allow – with fixed-pitch propellers the blades and boss are usually a single casting.

The Semaphore flag signaling system is an alphabet signaling system based on the waving of a pair of hand-held flags in a particular pattern. The flags would have been attached to a rod or post.
These flags each measure 17 inches square. They are soiled, lightly stained, and have been folded up for many years. They were obtained from a large nautical auction some time ago.

There are three mount holes on the aluminum base that will require a mounting surface that measures 4 1/2 x 8 inches. The aluminum box measures about 4 1/2 inches X 7 inches. It will extend out from the wall by almost 5 1/2 inches. This fire alarm bell weighs about 18 pounds.
