Copper alloy

Wheel. Probably pressed metal flanged wheel with three round apertures and a lug, probably one half of a two-part pulley wheel. The flange has opposed spurs probably relating to its function; the hub of the wheel projects externally and is dimpled within, it was probably gripped externally by paired brackets. Possibly from a domestic pulley system, as used to raise and lower indoor clothes drying racks; similar objects also served to route bell pull wires where domestic servants were employed, and for related purposes. Suggested date: Modern, 1850-1900.
