An antique French well or barn pulley wheel. This one has been painted blue at some point. These were often attached to buildings like Boulangerie’s for pulling flour up into the attics. We have one outside our shop which used to be a boulangerie.
Sourced: in Normandy, France
Age: circa 1910-30’s
Size roughly: 39 x 30 x 10 cm – 15.5 x 12 x 4 inches, wheel 12 inches, to take rope up to 3.5 cm – 1.4 inches
Unpacked weight roughly: 5 kg (so expensive to ship internationally I am afraid)
Condition: in vintage condition with signs of previous use, surface rust, still a strong and functional item, may benefit from greasing and a coat or two of good quality metal paint, or leave as is for that industrial look…
Discerning features: nicely aged
