Vintage Americana Home Town Carnival Game Wheel U.s. Presidents Patriotic Ooak For Sale
VINTAGE RURAL FOLK ART PATRIOTIC U.S. PRESIDENTS HAND MADE CARNIVAL GAME WHEEL
A one-of-a-kind piece of folk art found in the rural midwest. This neat display of the red, white, and blue measures 27.5" in diameter. We are assuming it was created for use as a small town carnival game. There is a hole in the back where the wheel may have attached to a turn spindle. It's construction consists of a thin piece of wood that forms the wheel, patriotic red, white, and blue unused lead pencils, old (empty), collectible, granulated sugar packets that are printed with an image of U.S. Presidents and displayed in chronological order. The most recent president is President Ford...1974 to 1977. There are also small paper U.S. flag labels that are placed between the pencils. The center of the wheel features a fan folded paper decoration with metal star in the center. Holes were drilled (very neatly) around the board and stretch cording was threaded to hold each pencil in place.
Each pencil is printed with a gentleman's name and the town he lived in. Because of the way the pencils were displayed, we didn't realize a name was on the pencil until we began to clean up the wheel. The town is Annawan, Illinois, a very small community of 900 people.
Considering age, overall condition is better than good, there is age spotting on the white background as shown and two of the small flag labels are missing (see 4th photo). The 38 sugar packets are discolored from age, a little fragile but they remain fully intact. There is a sawtooth hanger that was added by the shop owner.
