Wheel of Fortune

Gaming wheels such as this were popular from the late 19th century thru the early 20th century. Such 'Wheel of Fortunes' were as common at local fairs as they were at church socials. This example was indeed rescued from a church basement in Indiana, and although not unusual in form it is the first of such wheels we've seen in 4 colors including blue; make it 5 if you count the oxidized rim! Dating c.1900, the wheel is 31" in diameter mounted to a board 35" in length.
