Propeller Wall Clock
- 24 X 24 inches
- Solid cast aluminum
The astonishing Propeller wall clock is an extraordinary statement piece. Modeled after the three-bladed propellers on a Douglas DC-3 aircraft, it gives a nod to that plane’s iconic durability. Made from solid cast aluminum with brass fasteners, the three blades are individually attached and come together to frame an authentic period aircraft dial.
In its extensive holdings of documents related to aeronautics, the National Archives keeps in trust records that begin with those of the National Advisory Committee that was formed in 1915 to study problems in flight and conduct research in aeronautics. NASA records are also held at the National Archives, as is the Wright brothers’ patent for their flying machine.
