Recognize This Curved Spoke Elevator Wheel?

September 4th, 2013

IMG_1803We’ve got an elevator enthusiast looking for more information on the attached photo. This is what we’ve got so far. It came off an elevator out of a building built around the 1920’s – 1930’s. It’s cast iron and has curved spokes. Anyone know where it came from? Who made it? Or what type of elevator it came off of?

Please use the comments section below with any information you might have on it. It’s a truly cool piece.
