A charming piece of nautical memorabilia is this vintage ship's propeller constructed of heavy cast bronze. It does have a few years behind it, and so carries a few dings and pits, but it is still a very attractive and rather graceful object.

While one may feel that it has no function outside of the water, we feel that it has a multitude of potential uses: an ornament for a wall or desk, a paper weight, a shield, a neck-strengthening hat (perhaps not to be advised), or a ninja star for a giant, to mention but a few!
