Carnival Game Wheel of Dames Item # F1985

Circa 1940s


Game wheels of chance were popular diversions in the annual fairs and traveling carnivals of the early-to-mid 20th century. This particular hand-made model is extremely unique, as it is filled with Vivien Leigh and Joan Crawford-type lithographed memento cards. Perhaps you got a copy of the card when you spun the wheel? We love the bright colors, the nickel-plated trim and the gilded glue-chip glass accents. Some of the gals were replaced over the years, with hairstyles dating from the '60s, but most look to be straight out of Rogers & Hammerstein's 1945 classic musical: State Fair.

  • Historical Style: Traditional
  • Notes: To install, we fabricated a mounting block from the back, so the wheel can still be spun!
  • Condition Notes: The nicely worn finish is all part of the character of this piece, which has had components replaced or rebuilt over the years.
