Antique Nantucket Ship's Wheel Dining Table

Price: $4,800.00

Antique ship's wheel dining table from Nantucket Island, made by the renowned Scrimshaw artist Nancy Chase (1931-2016). Nancy bought this Late 19th Century Ship's Wheel from an antiques shop on Nantucket Harbour at the head of Steamship Wharf (beside the old Skipper Restaurant) when she was a teenager in the 1950s, and built the base for it with her father. She cleverly mounted it with an antique compass dial to cover the hub. The half inch thick plate glass for the top was ordered from the old Hardy's Hardware Store formerly on South Water Street. The antique wheel features a brass rim and the usual brass cap on the prime spoke. The wheel and base are in excellent condition, while the top has the expected scratches on the surface. Measures: 60 in diameter x 31 in height $4800.
