Pair of Ship's Engine Room Brass Jugs

fitted with hardwood handles. These were used to draw off water from steam ship boilers, so that the salinity could be tested. One handle is marked with red paint and the other green, we speculate one was used for the port boiler and the other starboard! Unusual and decorative marine items from a bygone age. Some service wear, but good original condition. Height 30cm (12”).
