Exclamation Help Requested to Identify this Propeller

I inherited this wooden propeller from my great grandfather. I'm taking a wild guess - possibly close to 100 years old. I'm looking for approximate age and what the plane would have looked like that it came from. I'm completely ignorant on this matter so please pardon that. LOL

Thanks in advance,
Christie

It's hard, and maybe impossible, to identify. Westmoore built a large number of props in the teens and early twenties for a variety of aircraft. Unfortunately, good record keeping doesn't seem to have been a priority, and there were thousands of different models manufactured during that time period.

In addition, props were made for a specific engine/hub combination and could fit on a variety of different aircraft using that engine.
