Product Description

A charming pair of original boat oars…

Although we are unsure of the exact age of these pieces, we would suggest they date to the last quarter of the 20th century, circa 1970s. The oars have some hand painted lettering on them referring to the Henley Royal Regatta, in 1937, but we believe that this would have been added at a later date, for decorative purposes. That said, we could be wrong

The oars have a brilliant look, and would look ace stacked in a corner of ones home, or equally these would look ace graced on a wall in a retail environment. The oars are wooden, with ‘hardened rubber’ collars in Yellow. The patina on the oars is delightful, with some paint chipping and weathered areas in general. The hand painted text is naively done, but we think it adds a nice element to the oars and would certainly cause a talking point. A deep clean and a nice clear wax would really bring make these stand out…

We are offering these pieces in ‘as found’ condition, therefore there is natural wear and tear. The oars although structurally great have some surface scars and scratches, with some paint chipping and a general weathered look and feel. This doesn’t however impact the overall look and feel and we feel it simply adds to their charm and authenticity. Please do study the photos to help with your analysis as it would be hard to highlight all imperfections…
