I don't know what airplane/engine would use the propeller, but I think you would get a better idea of value from someone familiar with military antiques and collectibles.

Willkommen Freund zu diesem Forum.

After WW1, an industry developed in Germany to make items from old propellers. Picture frames made from a propeller tip are common. Tables like yours are rarer.

The propeller was made by the Germania Company in 1917 or 1918 very probably for the Benz 185 horse-power engine. The most likely aircraft was the Hansa Brandenburg W29, a seaplane used in the North Sea by the Navy.

I think your table is worth a few hundred Euros.

Happy Christmas.

mit freundlichen Grüßen und einem glücklichen Weihnachten und gutenneuen Jahr.
