Zeppelin steering wheel

Post by peterjonas77 » 13 Dec 2018 16:55


I just stumbled across an eBay auction of an old steering wheel that is declared to be an original Zeppelin steering wheel. Can anyody tell me how likely it is that this piece is genuine?
The link is here:

Any information is welcome!

Many thanks in advance!

Well it is certainly made from the right material.

Obviously very few of us would be able to assist you except based on the information you've already assembled, but looks like examples I've seen in photos or movies..... That's the only reservation I would have, that it could be a movie prop. Interesting item, but difficult to prove IMO.
