Large mill wheel

Over three feet in diameter! This is a very large mill wheel made of wood. Beautiful detailing on the outer edges with smaller pieces of wood making up the entire outer wheel. They all fit together like a puzzle! I believe these were used in mills with flat pulley belts. Fantastic architectural art! Weighs almost 35 pounds. SOLD!

I have one of these and always wondered what it was used for! So pretty!
