Product Description: This Ships Wheel pin badge is made from lead-free pewter and is supplied on a pin with separate clasp. A ship's spoked wheel is a classic steering mechanism featuring a central hub connected to multiple radiating spokes, used to control the ship's direction. The pin badge is mounted on an information card that has a blue background with the word "Maritime" on the front and has information about the development of boats on the reverse.

Information: The earliest civilisations living near water would have floated on logs or made crude boats made from a wooden frame wrapped in animal skins. As time went by these were replaced with boats made from wooden planks which had masts with sails on them. Throughout history boats with sails have been instrumental in the development of civilisation whether for trade, transport or warfare. Evidence of ‘ships’ under sail can be seen on painted discs dating back over 5000 years ago.
