Hand-crafted ship wheel is a beautiful example of old-world class and sophistication. Made from solid Indian rosewood, the wood is carved, turned and joined using traditional woodwork joinery techniques, the six-spoke wheel is finished with a brass alloy bearing that gathers all the wood to its symmetrically balanced centre.
There are few real world symbols as recognisable, as daunting, as adversarial, as powerful or as old as the oceans and seas of the world. So it’s only natural a portion of that rich symbolism should rub off onto the objects used to conquer nature’s wild waterways. Vintage World’s curated and selective collection of maritime-themed decor for the home or office (or man-cave, as the case often is) features traditional nautical pieces that throughout history have been integral in man’s admirable, yet foolhardy endeavour to command the seven seas and harness the ocean’s great might.
Our ship items above all else will present you as a thoughtful friend or associate who has taken time and put some effort into their ‘shipmates’ gift.
