We were recently lucky enough to acquire two lovely pieces of Naval history with a view to offering to our customers.
Siemens Brothers of London, Ship’s Brass Telegraph, twin hammerhead design and independent handles. Ship’s commands include: ‘Hard, Port, Steady, Course, Steady, Starboard, hand written on one head and Let Go, Slack Away, Not Clear, Make Fast, Heave In, Stop Winch’ and ‘All Clear’ on the other head. Removed from a 1940’s Royal Navy destroyer, similar to the Hunt Class Escort Destroyer shown in the first image. Very heavy and exceptional quality. A lovely piece in highly polished brass with working handles.
Aluminium fluted spot light, on stand, was originally from a German merchant navy ship, circa 1970’s. Again, very strong and heavy design. Beautifully made and a real feature for any workspace/living area. The lamp has been converted to tale a conventional bulb with inline switch.
In addition: The wooden ships wheel was ordered new by us in 1985… and has remained with us as an ornament, until now. Beautifully made and ready to be used for its intended purpose – or as an ornamental.
Some great Seafaring Memorabilia here and hopefully we will be adding to our stock over the coming months,
Available to view in the Morgan Marine shop at Waterside Marina, Brightlngsea. Due to the size, weight and nature of these items the buyer must collect. We may be able to arrange local delivery at cost. Call 01206 302008 and speak to Ric Morgan for prices and further details.
