Early-20th Century Working Scratch Built Windmill Model
We are proud to offer an original one-off example of an early 20th century English scratch-built model of a working windmill. Amazingly made from found objects including wood, brass, copper, and glass. The craftsmanship is quite astonishing due to its realistic appearance and proportions. The large windmill wheel spin once moved, gate opens and closes, the cotton rope pulls, small metal windmill to the reverse also moves once spun, and the gutter and water panel on the wall and made from aged metal. With glass windows and metal accessories including a pull along trolley, bucket, and wheelbarrow. Overall a wonderful architectural folk-art scratch-built model, a complete one off and highly decorative object.
