What a great looking whirligig, 4 sailboats with cloth sails mounted on a 4 arm mount. The boats sail around and around when the wind blows. Each boat is actually a cutaway as they are flat on the inside and boat shaped on the outside. They are all painted different colors and the whirligig is mounted on a fabulous wooden stand.
This whirligig is more than likely from the early 20th century but there is nice age to the patina of the paint. It is all intact and it does work.
The piece stands 33" tall on the stand and is 21" across. Each boat is 10" tall x 10 1/4" long by 1" thick.
