3203 Royal Navy Cigarette Case - Click for the bigger picture SoldRoyal Navy Cigarette Case - An early 20th century hallmarked silver cigarette case with Royal Navy connections. The front carries a family coat of arms and initials below. These show some wear and while the initals are not entirely clear, they may be CFH. The reverse is engraved with 20 Royal Navy ships' names and beside each a corresponding date, which appears to indicate the time served on each vessel. The first entry is for HMS Britannia from January 1905 and the final posting is for HMS Vernon in November 1921. Throughout WWI he served on HMS Blenheim (Feb 1914-August 1918). Some of the early engravings are a little worn, but it is possible to decipher HMS Isis, Eclipse, Africa, Greenwich, Excellent, Stranner, Monarch, Irresistible, Erin, Caledon, Curacoa. The case is hallmarked Birmingham 1907 with maker's mark A&JZ. It measures 3.5" x 3" (9 cm x 8 cm). Generally good condition with minor service wear.
3205 Yacht Tiller - Click for the bigger picture SoldYacht Tiller - Manufactured in oak with square form carved head and attractive original rope knop. Sadly, we have no information on the craft it came from, but the style indicates it could date from the 1930's. Finished in original varnish and showing some age wear. Nice patina and a very decorative display item, or could go back to sea on a classic yacht! Size 41" (106 cm).
1987 H.M.S. Dainty Speaking Tube - Click for the bigger picture SoldH.M.S. Dainty Speaking Tube - Original speaking tube mouthpiece in aluminium and brass with plaque named to Captain of Turret. On the heavy brass bolt is engraved H.M.S. Dainty and the date in roman numerals MCDLXXI. H.M.S. Dainty was a Destoyer, 2610 tons and measured 290 feet long. She was built in 1950 and carried 6 4.5" guns and we assume this speaking tube was removed from one of the turrets when she was broken up in 1971. Measures 8" (21 cm.)
2378 Ale House Tankard - Click for the bigger picture SoldAle House Tankard - Original tankard finely engraved to the front "Ye Olde Boat Inne Alcester." Manufactured in brass, the tankard would have been used in a public house and the engraving would effectively be an early form of property mark to ensure the tankard remained on the premises! It features a hinged lid and the tankard shows minor service wear as you would expect, but overall has great patina and probably dates from the late 19th century.
2869 Genuine Ship's Porthole - Click for the bigger picture SoldGenuine Ship's Porthole - Made from solid brass with opening port which has been converted to form a unique maritime mirror. The original armoured glass is in place behind the mirror and unlike most examples we see, this is the genuine item and perfect for your nautical theme bathroom or maritime collection. Diameter 12" (30 cm.)
1176 Huddart Parker Line Dish - Click for the bigger picture SoldHuddart Parker Line Dish - Manufactured by Walker & Hall, Sheffield and stamped to base warranted hard and silver soldered. To the rim is a finely embossed crest to the Huddart Parker Line. Good solid build quality with minor service wear. Measures 9" (23 cm.)
2664 H.M.S. Speedy Trench Art - Click for the bigger picture SoldH.M.S. Speedy Trench Art - A superb example, made from shell cases in the form of a fireside coal scuttle. The body is made from a 1915 dated shell casing stamped Berndorf, while the base is a smaller casing dated August 1917. An ornate plaque is attached to the top, named to H.M.S. Speedy and dated 1921. Speedy was a 'S' Class Destroyer, 1087 tons, built by Thornycroft in 1918, but was sunk 24.9.1922 following a collision with a tug on the Sea of Marmara. Much larger than normal Trench Art which we see, with the scuttle section measuring 8" x 6.5" (20 cm. x 16 cm.)
1390 H.M.S Furious Presentation Vase - Click for the bigger picture SoldH.M.S Furious Presentation Vase - Small single stem vase in white metal with Royal Naval enamel crest to the front named to H.M.S. Furious. She was completed in 1918 as an Aircraft Carrier, 19, 100 tons with a length of 750 feet. She served throughout WWII and was broken up in 1948. The vase measures 3.75" (9 cm.). While small, it is beautifully formed and a nice souvenir from the age of "flat tops".
2423 Trench Art Ashtray named to Sea Swallow - Click for the bigger picture SoldTrench Art Ashtray named to Sea Swallow - Made from brass, copper and white metal, this is a most attractive example and it features a marine motif to the ashtray section and the ship's name below. We have so far not researched the Sea Swallow, but suspect she was probably a WWII vintage Merchant Navy vessel.
2725 H.M.T.B. 27 Presentation Item - Click for the bigger picture SoldH.M.T.B. 27 Presentation Item - An attractive EPNS preserve set complete with two glass dishes. To the front of the base is finely engraved HMTB 27, presented to Mr. & Mrs. Enever from Mess Mates, November 1917. While we have no direct provenance, we can only assume Mr. Enever was a crew member of Torpedo Boat 27 in WWI and this was perhaps presented by his crew mates on the occasion of his wedding? The base is stamped EPNS, a maker's mark and the number 5778. The chrome finish shows minor age wear, but overall in extremely nice condition. Torpedo Boat 27 was 127 feet long, weighed 60 tons and built by Thornycroft in 1880. She was sold out of service 2.10.19.
2657 Bronze Propeller Blade Paper Weight - Click for the bigger picture SoldBronze Propeller Blade Paper Weight - Made in the form of a single marine propeller blade. Embossed on the base the name J. Stone & Company, Deptford, London, who were manufacturers of ships' propellers and no doubt this example would have been presented to an existing or potential customer. It is extremely tactile, yet a functional item and would be at home in any nautical collection. It measures 6" (15 cm).
1346 HMS Striker Souvenir Pennant - Click for the bigger picture SoldHMS Striker Souvenir Pennant - A green felt example with an image of Striker's ship's badge and yellow lettering. Three vessels have carried the Striker name in the Royal Navy, but we have had it confirmed from Michael Harley in Australia this comes from the escort carrier 11, 420 tons, launched in 1942 on the Lend/ Lease Programme and returned to the USN in 1946. He tells us he lunched aboard with his Mother when she visited Sydney harbour around 1945 and he was presnted with an identical pennant from his uncle who was a memember of her crew! Generally good condition, but minor moth nibbles. It measures 18" (46 cm.)
1345 Royal Navy Souvenir Pennant - Click for the bigger picture SoldRoyal Navy Souvenir Pennant - Manufactured in blue felt and embossed with a large war ship, together with a Royal Naval white ensign and issued to commemorate the visit of the Royal Pacific Fleet to Australia. The item is not dated, but judging by the unnamed war ship, would appear to be from the 1940's. Generally in excellent original condition, with a couple of very minor moth nibbles. It measures 26" (66 cm.)
2348 HMS Victory Dominoes Set - Click for the bigger picture SoldHMS Victory Dominoes Set - A unique set of dominoes made by a Portsmouth dockyard worker, utilising scrap oak taken from timbers removed from HMS Victory during repairs and restoration in about 1910. The dominoes were used by the workers in their staff canteen during the lunch break. A pine box, in which they are contained, has hand written on the side No. 3 Shed, together with some original scores. A truly one off momento with an association to the most famous war ship in the Royal Navy.
2200 Ship's Red Ensign and Flag Pole - Click for the bigger picture SoldShip's Red Ensign and Flag Pole - A genuine "red duster" fitted on original hardwood flag pole. The flag is in flown condition, but makes a great display item or would much like to go back to sea! Flag measurements 29" x 15" (74 cm x 38 cm).
2590 Ship's Brass Clock - Click for the bigger picture SoldShip's Brass Clock - A fine example manufactured by Smith's Clocks & Watches Ltd. and dated 1965. It also carries the military broad arrow and the stores reference code 21B/829, so was either Royal Navy or Royal Air Force issue. The case and dial are in superb original condition with roman numerals and sweep second hand. It has an eight day movement. We have just had this clock serviced and it comes with a one year guarantee. Measures 10.5" (27 cm)across the back plate.
215 Ship's Clinometer - Click for the bigger picture SoldShip's Clinometer - In brass and mounted on a mahogany board for display purposes. These instruments would originally have been bulkhead mounted and utilised gravity to indicate the list on the ship to ensure cargo was evenly loaded. The instrument carries a scale at the base indicating lists up to 45 degrees port or starboard and this can be read from the string pointer. No maker's marks but in excellent condition. Measures 10" (26 cm).
2833 Thomas Walker Ship's Log - Click for the bigger picture SoldThomas Walker Ship's Log - Complete with rotator wheel, cord and fin. Marked on the dial Cherub Walker's Mk. III. In the age of satelite navigation, these wonderful instruments are obsolete, but they make very attractive display items and look extremely well mounted on a suitable display board. The fin is stamped with an anchor design T.W. and Cherub. Sold as a display item, although might well work as originally intended but we don't have the facility to test!
850 United States Seventh Fleet Brass Tray - Click for the bigger picture SoldUnited States Seventh Fleet Brass Tray - A presentation tray with United States Seventh Fleet eagle and anchor motif to the centre and the legend "Ready Power for Peace" below. This item is so far unresearched so we are not sure of the exact age, but it has a good build quality and nice patina, although could be polished to a high shine if desired. 11" (29 cm).
2852 Marine Telescope - Click for the bigger picture SoldMarine Telescope - An original four draw marine telescope in brass with leather trimming to the forward section. The instrument is engraved A.C. Campbell K.O.S.B. The eye piece has a small sliding brass cover and whilst we are selling as a decorative item, it does function and focuses well, but would probably benefit from an internal clean. It is in generally good condition, although the brass work shows one or two minor knocks as you would expect. It comes complete with leather lens covers. Fully extended it measures 30" (77 cm).
