A great little piece of cottage type decor. The blades of the windmill spin with a light touch. Reminiscent of whirlygigs.
Small wooden windmill mounted on a shield shape. Holds the sconce. The socket cover sleeve simulates a candle. Ideally it would have had a flame shaped bulb, though some of the compact fluorescent bulbs have a funny and possibly compatible shape. Needs to be rewired.
Shield back 6 3/4" X 4 3/4"
Depth - 7" from wall to front rim of the bobeche
Overall height - bottom of shield to top of 'candle' sleeve approx. 9"
One of the blades and the tail is missing, but the tail might have been shaped like a cloud with the name of a tourist location painted on it. (see example) - The ones we've seen usually are from Massachusetts which might have said Cape Cod or Nantucket.
These pieces could easily be made to bring it back to functioning shape, or just set it on a shelf as a sweet folksy ornament.
5 1/4" wide span of blades
Height from table to top of blade socket (without fan blade) 5"
Base is 2 5/8" X 2 5/8"
The sellers have been on the web since 1996 sharing their music as the band TagYerit (tag you're it).
