Early wooden oxcart wheel made from a single piece of solid teak. Measures 37 inches across, 39.25 inches high with stand, 3.25 inches thick in the center, and 2.5 inches thick at the edge. The deep rich color of the wood is simply delicious. Note the old metal brace repairs that kept the wheel in use through the centuries. Mounted for artistic display on an steel base with side supports. Probably Asian, made prior to the 18th century, but the exact age and country of origin is unknown. This is the earliest example of a wheel we have ever seen.T

I got a chair from my grandmother with carved dragons on it. After searching everywhere, I found the same chair on your website. I thought it looked Asian, but had no idea how valuable it is! I almost sold it to a friend for a hundred bucks. I am so glad I used your site to learn how much it's worth! Your price guide is such a great tool! Thanks Again!!
