Any Ideas?

This is a wheel I purchased about five years ago from a woman in her 70's. She told me it was used by her mother for as many years as she could remember. She believed the wheel was brought over from Germany and was typical of what the women in her city of Buffalo neighborhood used on their front porches during the after dinner hours of many summer evenings.

I just love the idea of the gals sitting on the front porch exchanging bits of gossip while keeping an eye on the children running from one front yard to another.
Could anyone tell me anything about this wheel? The wheel is a bit warped and chipped; I am not sure a drive band would even stay put.
