This 'Ship's Wheel' is an antique relic and a piece of a true American
Treasure. This item was made from the original metal removed from
the USS Constitution during restoration in 1927. The ship, nicknamed
'Old Ironsides' and fabricated by the Paul Revere Foundry, was built in
1794. Named by President George Washington, the ship was launched
in 1797. Today, the USS Constitution is anchored in Boston Harbor as
a National Treasure.
