Lookee here — a new wheel! It’s a handsome one and in reasonably good shape. This measures 7.875 inches across and comes to us from Carnation fresh dairy products. There is no date on this, unfortunately. This one was a DIY wheel. I don’t know how it was delivered, but the tabs where the grommet should be are just folder-over jobs. It’s amazing these are in such good shape. That’s right: the etsy seller sent us TWO.
I really like the design of this one — nice colors. And look at the swirling ocean! On the front you only have a window for the capital and flag. On the back, you’ll learn about the weather, population, area, and principal industries. There are also many comparisons to features in the United States. “The Amazon River is 1,000 miles longer than the Mississippi River.” My favorite, of course, is “Some of the Silver Pits [yes, capitalized] of Peru are large enough to swallow San Francisco, California.” !
In addition to information about weather and such, you’ll see a fine Carnation dairy product featured (but not for every country). This really is one of the nicest looking wheels around.
