An extremely rare WW1 period German airspeed instrument (anemometer) by Wilhelm Morell, Leipzig.

Circa - 1917 / 18.

This type of airspeed instrument was usually fitted to a wing strut within sight of the pilot. The brass 'cups' rotated to display the aircraft speed in Km/h.
In excellent untouched original condition, retaining almost all of its German military black paint. The lead 'test' seal is also still in place.

As fitted to Fokker and Albatros aeroplanes.
