Reference Stock Item   Description
2232 Shipwright's Scribe - Click for the bigger picture SoldShipwright's Scribe - This instrument is made from hardwood and we believe it would have been used in a shipyard to assist with marking timber during the boat building process. Unusually, it is embossed with a King's Crown and a George VI cypher. In addition, it has been stamped with the names of 37 people on each of the four sides of the instrument. We can only speculate, but perhaps this was done by shipwright colleagues who presented the instrument as a leaving memento to a retiring worker. Central stem 8" (20cm)
3294 RMSP Copper Jug - Click for the bigger picture SoldRMSP Copper Jug - An original copper jug engraved to the front RMSP (Royal Mail Steam Packet Company) and possibly used on one of the ships of this line for water in a cabin. The base is stamped Best NE and the letter B. It is in extremely good condition and is a very decorative item from this famous line. It is also an excellent size to display at 8.5" (22cm)
OC214 HMS Benbow Trench Art - Click for the bigger picture SoldHMS Benbow Trench Art - A solid brass tray, probably fashioned from a shell casing with ornate scalloped edges and a fine engraved image of a part women/part bird with the legend HMS Benbow 1924. Benbow was a 25, 000 Battle Ship built for the Royal Navy in 1913 and she served throughout WW1 including the battle of Jutland where she escaped any damage. She was paid off and broken up in 1931. This item was no doubt crafted by a crew member in 1924 when she was serving in the Mediterranean as a unique gift for his wife, girlfriend or family member. Measures 5.5" (34cm)

The dial is stamped HFSC and dated 1942 and carries a scale from 0 to 160 Kg/Cm. The brass threaded connector is clearly stamped with an eagle and swastika and below WaA300. We have no other information with this item, but it would appear to be a wartime pressure gauge of some description. Original paint showing some wear. Measures 5" (13cm)
2402 Bofors Gun Speaking Tube & Plaque - Click for the bigger picture SoldBofors Gun Speaking Tube & Plaque - A most unusual grouping comprising firstly, a copper and brass speaking tube with a section of the original communication pipe.

Both items are in extremely good condition, but sadly we do not know what ship they came from. Speaking tube measures 19.5" (50cm), and the plaque 6" (15cm)

PC41 Ship's Gimbal Electric Lamp - Click for the bigger picture SoldShip's Gimbal Electric Lamp - An original example which was probably used in the cabin of a passenger liner with ornate fluted stem. It can be mounted in the vertical position on a desk or table or could have been fixed to a bulkhead in the horizontal position. The lamp is manufactured from brass with a chrome finish and while showing some wear, this adds to the vintage character of the lamp. It has been recently rewired with period replica wiring.

2696 Ship's Navigation Lamp - Click for the bigger picture SoldShip's Navigation Lamp - A high quality example from the port side in exceptionally good condition.

The diopic lens has a couple of small chips, but overall in very good condition. The lamp carries a heavy brass plaque which dates it to 22.05.1969 and while the manufacturer is not mentioned, it looks as if it could be made by Harvie. Height, excluding handle 15" (38 cm).
3206 HMT Milford Princess Screen Badge - Click for the bigger picture SoldHMT Milford Princess Screen Badge - A painted wooden badge with heavy brass backing plate in diamond form surmounted by a gold crown. The coat of arms is hand painted and while showing some age wear, it is in generally good condition.

In December 1939 the number had halved, with the most efficient being conscripted into the Royal Naval Patrol Service. Milford Princess registered port no. M228 carried pennant FY616, indicating she was assigned to minesweeping duties. She served from September 1939 to September 1945, after which time she was returned to her owners. This badge could well have been made up on board and would probably have been mounted on the front of the bridge. Good original condition with some service wear. 17" (43 cm)

In 1928 she was purchased by the White Star Line, while in 1933 was transferred to the Aberdeen and Commonwealth Line. 1936 saw her renamed SS Esperance Bay and in 1939 she was requisitioned by the Admiralty and served as HMS Esperance Bay, an armed merchant cruiser pennant FY67. In 1941 she was converted to a troop ship. Post war she was returned to her owners, renamed Arawa and was scrapped in 1955.
