Scratch Built Fairground Wheel
Mounted on a bespoke cast iron detachable support stand, this unique, folk art, scratch-built fairground roulette wheel is still in fully working order. We would say dated from the mid-20th Century the wheel is made from an old bicycle wheel, a hand painted metal sheet completes the wheels facia. With wrought iron nails for stoppers in place and metal bracket flap at the top. This highly decorative and one-off piece of fairground art would look amazing stood in the corner of a quirky, funky interior space. The wheel is detachable from the stand so could be hung from a wall if needed.

Completely solid in structure and form, worn, loss of painted and aged surface, faded in areas as shown to the right-hand side of the wheel. Lots of rust as this item would have spent most of its time outside. An old well used authentic fairground wheel so please expect wear and tear as shown. It is exceedingly difficult to photograph all the areas on this piece.
