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).
2868 Ship's Helm - Click for the bigger picture SoldShip's Helm - An original helmsman's wheel in hardwood (looks like teak), with a brass centre and rings. The top spoke carries a brass thimble to provide a visual aid to the helmsman to indicate when the rudder is in the straight position. The back of the hub is stamped with the number 5200, 1, ES and the military broad arrow mark, so assume this wheel has come from a Royal Naval vessel. It measures 30" (76 cm), so is an excellent display size. Please note this is a heavy item and we can provide a postage quotation on request.
1944 19th Century Scrimshaw Ditty Box and Spoons - Click for the bigger picture Sold19th Century Scrimshaw Ditty Box and Spoons - A superb sailor made set which was found in an original seaman's chest. The oval shaped ditty box is engraved with the initials T.M. and an "S" surrounded by a heart. It is dated 1883. This is accompanied by two spoons of early form which are engraved on the handles with the initials T.M. and it would appear that the set has been carved by the same hand. Sadly, we don't know who T.M. was and can only surmise that "S" was his sweetheart or wife. Genuine scrimshaw is now very scarce and this unique grouping is a fine example of sailors' art. Box measures 3.5" (8.5 cm.) and spoons measure 8" (20 cm.) and 4.5" (11 cm.)
2468 HMS Vendetta Trench Art Ashtray - Click for the bigger picture SoldHMS Vendetta Trench Art Ashtray - Made in brass, with ship's crest engraved to centre with the legend "Vindico" below. Vendetta was a V/W Class Destroyer, launched in 1917 and fought with distinction in WWII. She was transferred to the Australian Navy in 1932 and was scuttled off Sidney Heads in 1948. 6" (15.5 cm.)
1941 HMS Barfoam Trench Art - Click for the bigger picture SoldHMS Barfoam Trench Art - A matched pair of small plates in brass with marine propeller stands. One is stamped HMS Barfoam and dated 1941. Barfoam was a Bar Class Boom Defence Vessel launched in 1941 with pennant number 182. These decorative examples of trench art were almost certainly made by a crew member on board the ship in late 1941. 4" (10.5 cm.)
2008 SS Orantes Ashtray - Click for the bigger picture SoldSS Orantes Ashtray - Manufactured in brass with enamel crest to centre with the house flag of the Orient Line. Orantes was launched in 1929, was a passenger liner of 20, 000 tons and she remained in service until 1962. 10" (26 cm.)
OC213 Royal Navy Bosun's Whistle - Click for the bigger picture SoldRoyal Navy Bosun's Whistle - Genuine example, stamped with the broad arrow property mark to bowl and rope lanyard attached. The stem has D866 scratched on it. We assume this was the original owner's identifying mark. Good working order. 4.5" (12 cm.)
2083 HMS Boyne Builder's Plaque - Click for the bigger picture SoldHMS Boyne Builder's Plaque - This example is of the style used on builder's models, although sadly, we only have the plaque! Boyne was a torpedo boat destroyer built by R & W Hawthorn in 1904 and she served until 1919. Good condition with age patination. 8.5" x 2.75" (22 cm. x 7 cm.)
1926 HMS Ocean Tie Pin - Click for the bigger picture SoldHMS Ocean Tie Pin - Manufactured in brass with HMS Ocean enamel crest and pin back. Several RN ships have carried the name Ocean, but we believe this relates to the Aircraft Carrier which entered service in 1944, rather than the earlier Battleship of 1898. 2.5" (6 cm.)
