3961 HMS Rodney Tea Spoon - Click for the bigger picture SoldHMS Rodney Tea Spoon - A Nelson-class battleships and named after Admiral Lord Rodney. The Nelsons were the only British battleship to have 16 inch guns, and the only ones to carry all the main armament forward of the superstructure. Commissioned in 1927, Rodney served extensively in the Mediterranean and Atlantic Ocean during World War II. She played a major role in the sinking of the German battleship Bismarck in May 1941. Like HMS Emerald, Rodney took part in the Normandy landings, including carrying out several coastal bombardments. In poor condition from heavy use and lack of refits, she was scrapped in 1948. We presume our spoon was for a tea caddy or possibly sugar. The top of the stem carries the ships name and crest whilst the reverse is marked EPNS. The spoon shows minor age wear but overall is in excellent condition. Measures 4.5” (10.5 cm)
988 HMS Emerald Napkin ring - Click for the bigger picture SoldHMS Emerald Napkin ring - Was an Emerald-class light cruiser of the Royal Navy. She was built by Armstrong at Newcastle-on-Tyne, 1918. She was launched in 1920 and commissioned 1926. She was paid off to the reserve fleet in 1937 but recommissioned and served throughout WW11 and had Battle honours for the Atlantic and Normandy in 1944 when she was part of Force K supporting landings on Gold Beach. She was broken up in Scotland in 1948. Our napkin ring carries the ships crest and name as well as the Irish shamrock logo. The back is marked EPNS. The silver plate shows minor age wear but is generally in nice clean condition. Measures 2” (5cm)
2411 RMS Strathmore Toast Rack - Click for the bigger picture SoldRMS Strathmore Toast Rack - Strathmore was an ocean liner of the Peninsular and Oriental Steam Navigation Company (P&O).She was the first of five sister ships in what came to be called the "Strath" class and was launched in 1935. In WW11 she was requisitioned and she served for 9 years as government troopship. She was returned to P & O in 1948 but in 1963 she was sold to the Greek owners and renamed Marianna Latsis. She finally scrapped at La Spezia in May 1969. Our toast rack is marked EPNS on the back and Pat Nos 28880. The base carries a brass and enamel plaque featuring the P & O flag, a kings crown and the ships name RMS Strathmore. minor age wear to chrome but an excellent display item from a famous P & O vessel Measures 4” x 3.2" at base (9.5 cm x 8 cm)
1781 Item 1781 Treen Spill or Pen holder made from timbers ex HMS Iron Duke - Click for the bigger picture SoldItem 1781 Treen Spill or Pen holder made from timbers ex HMS Iron Duke - Like the letter holder we have also listed today this item carries a brass plaque reading ‘Made from Teak of HMS Iron Duke Admiral Jellicoe’s Flag Ship Jutland 1916’. HMS Iron Duke was a dreadnought battleship of the Royal Navy, the lead ship of her class, named in honour of Arthur Wellesley, 1st Duke of Wellington. She was built at Portsmouth Dockyard, and launched in 1912. She served with distinction in WW1 (including at Jutland.) In WW11 she served at Jutland as a Harbour Defence Vessel but was bombed by a German aircraft and had to be beached. She was broken up in 1946 and this spill or pencil holder would date from this time. Finished in polished teak it measures 3.5” high and is 3” in diameter (9 cm high and 5 cm diameter)
1780 Treen Letter Rack made from timbers ex HMS Iron Duke - Click for the bigger picture SoldTreen Letter Rack made from timbers ex HMS Iron Duke - An unusual and decorative example with a brass plaque confirming ‘Made from Teak of HMS Iron Duke Admiral Jellicoe’s Flag Ship Jutland 1916’. HMS Iron Duke was a dreadnought battleship of the Royal Navy, the lead ship of her class, named in honour of Arthur Wellesley, 1st Duke of Wellington. She was built at Portsmouth Dockyard, and launched in 1912. She served with distinction in WW1 (including at Jutland.) In WW11 she served at Jutland as a Harbour Defence Vessel but was bombed by a German aircraft and had to be beached. She was broken up in 1946 and this letter rack would date from this time. Measures 5”wide x 3.75” tall (12.5 cm wide x 9 cm tall). This actual example was featured in Millers Collectables guide of 2008.
1038 Pacific Steam Navigation Comany Pasty Cutters - Click for the bigger picture SoldPacific Steam Navigation Comany Pasty Cutters - The Pacific Steam Navigation Company was established in 1838 carrying mail and passengers and operated in the Pacific coast of South America, and was the first to use steam ships for commercial traffic in the Pacific Ocean. The company was finally incorporated into Royal Mail Lines in 1938. These two rings, which are made from plated metal, are nicely embossed with the company crest featuring Pacific Steam Navigation around the edge and a crown in the centre. We are not 100% sure of their purpose. One ring is a fraction smaller than the other and it has been suggested they were pastry cutters as they have a rounded ring on the top and a bevelled sharper edge on the bottom although we stand to be corrected on this! The larger ring measures 4” diameter (11.5 cm) and the smaller is 3.75” (9.5cm). Our price is for the pair but happy to sell individually at £15.00 each.
OC334 Royal Navy Cigarette case - Click for the bigger picture SoldRoyal Navy Cigarette case - This example features a Royal Navy crest to the front with a Kings Crown and fouled anchor below. The engine tuned case if chrome plated and carries an oblong plaque on the front for initials or name to be engraved but this has never been done. The spring catch enables the case to be opened. The interior carries and elastic strap to hold the cigarettes in place (Senor Service of course!) and the inside carries a gold effect finish. No makers details od date but believe it dates to WW11. Measures 4.5” x 3.5” (11 cm x 9 cm) Please check out the other military cigarette cases we are also listing today. £28.00
OC99 Set of Royal Navy Ships plaques - Click for the bigger picture SoldSet of Royal Navy Ships plaques - We purchased this set of four shields directly from the family of the Royal Navy Officer who served on the ships HMS Dampier, Scott, Owen and Flamingo during his service career. Dampier was originally named Herne Bay, a bay Class frigate but renamed in 1944 and served as a survey ship. Scott was another survey ship launched 1939. Owen started life as Thurso Bay but renamed Owen in 1944. Finally HMS Flamingo was a sloop launched in 1939 and sold to West Germany in 1959 where she was interestingly renamed Graf Spee! We have displayed these plaques in our own collection since 1999 (in the smallest room in this house!) but after redecoration a new look has been ordered so it is time to re home them. They display so well together so we prefer to leave as a set. Each shield is in oak and measures 7” top to bottom (17 cm) On the back they have a hanging point and all were originally supplied by Horns & Miller Ltd, who were based in Devenport, Plymouth. In good original condition with minor age related wear.
4595 Naval Semaphore Flags - Click for the bigger picture SoldNaval Semaphore Flags - The semaphore flag signalling system was designed by the Chappe brothers in France in the late 18th century. It was soon adopted by other European countries and despite modern technology the system is still used today. Here we have a mint and original set of flags which measure 12” x 14” (30cm x 36cm) with each flag is made from cotton and is divided diagonally into a red and a yellow section with the red in the uppermost triangle. The handles are varnished hardwood and whilst we don’t know their provenance appear to be in unissued condition.
6012 Heavy Duty Rope Ladder - Click for the bigger picture SoldHeavy Duty Rope Ladder - Whilst we have no history with this one looking at the manufacturing quality we believe it to be ex marine issue and possibly Royal Navy. Whilst we say 'issued' the ladder is so good we wonder if it actually ever left the stores? The coir rope looks to be in really good condition and is made up of 20 hardwood steps; we believe the wood to be ash but stand to be corrected. The 20 rungs are mounted with each rung 1 foot apart(30 cm) and the extended length of the ladder is 21 feet (6.4 meters).It is 12" wide (30cm)and at the top end it has two metal fittings designed to bolt the ladder on to a suitable secure attachment point. It is very decorative item and is a real designers piece or perfect for theatrical or film use. This item, like all stock offered on our site, is sold for collectable purposes only. It could well be it is strong enough to be used for its original intended purpose but we can’t guarantee this so if this is your intention re strongly recommended you get it checked out by a suitably qualified person first. More detailed pictures can be supplied on request.
OC327 6 Spoke Teak Bulkhead Ships Wheel and Mount - Click for the bigger picture Sold6 Spoke Teak Bulkhead Ships Wheel and Mount - This one looks exactly as it did when it came out of service! The wheel is made from teak with chromed brass banding and central hub and still fixed to its back plate, drum, wheel mount, spindle and gipsy. This example does not have any makers details but is of a similar design to those made by quality manufacturer Simpson Lawrence. Whilst for sale as a marine collectable the wheel looks to be 100% sound and subject to a full inspection we see no reason why it should not go back to sea. For display purposes in a marine themed room or collection the back board mount can easily be removed. The wheel diameter is 20 ” (51 cm.)
OC326 Decorative Brass Ships Inclinometer - Click for the bigger picture SoldDecorative Brass Ships Inclinometer - These instrument would originally have been mounted in the wheelhouse or bridge of the ship and would indicate to the Master or helmsman the degree of list to port or starboard and so provide a simple but effective method of keeping the ship level when loading cargo or ships stores. The same type of instrument is also used on sailing vessels to enable the skipper to control the list of the yacht to get maximum power, with minimum discomfort, from the sails. Whilst this one clearly has some age, confirmed by the wear to the hardwood display mount, it is a quality reproduction of an original instrument but still makes a very decorative item in a marine themed room or collection. Display mount measures 11.5” top to bottom (29cm) and is 12” wide (30cm.)
5124a Ships 'In/Out' Cabin Sign Board - Click for the bigger picture SoldShips 'In/Out' Cabin Sign Board - Tom Ferrers–Walker served in the Royal Navy in WW11 and when he left the service he decided to collect a range of Royal Navy artefacts and he dedicated the reminder of his life in assembling one of the most comprehensive private collections in the UK. He put in a tremendous amount of hard work (and cash!) into the collection and was able to purchase items that included ships helms, tread plates and screen badges, tompions, plaques and much else besides. These were initially acquired directly by Mr Ferrers-Walker when the ships were sold out of service and broken up in the period after World War 11 but he continued his hobby right up until the 1990’s when he sourced items from public auctions and private collectors. This Officers In/Out sign board is one of the more modest items from the collection but interesting none the less. Sadly we don’t know what ship it came from but no doubt was originally mounted on an Officers cabin door and it is nice to speculate perhaps that of the Captain? It has clearly been made up on board by the ships carpenter and is made from mahogany with a sliding panel to indicate if the officer is ‘In’ or ‘Out’.This would serve equally well today either ashore or afloat, perhaps on the door of the smallest room in the house? Measures 8.5” x 5.5” (22 cm x 14 cm)
5118 Name Box from Italian Cruiser Luigi Cadorna - Click for the bigger picture SoldName Box from Italian Cruiser Luigi Cadorna - An Italian Condottieri-class light cruiser, which was launched on 30 September 1931 with a crew numbering 507. The ship was named after Italian Field Marshal Luigi Cadorna who was commander in Chief of the Italian Army during World War I. She served with the Regia Marina during Spanish Civil War and in April 1939 she participated in the occupation of Albania. When World War II broke out she was a part of the 4th Cruiser division and saw action in various theatres. On 9th September 1943 she sailed to Malta to surrender to the allies. For the remainder of the war she was used as a transport ship by the Allies and for the repatriation of Italian troops. In 1947 she was one of the few ships to remain in the Italian Navy where she was used as a training ship. After a long and varied career she was finally scrapped in 1951. We have no idea if our box was used on board or the brass plaque was recovered from the cruiser when she was scrapped and made up as a piece of trench art by a crew member. The ships name Cadorna is very finely cut into the brass in a deco style. The box is nicely made in oak and has an opening rear door and measures 12” X 5.5” x 4.5” (31cm x13.5cm x11cm). A most unusual, decorative and scarce souvenir from a capital ship of the Regina Marina.
PC200 HMS Anson George V Class Battleship Wheel - Click for the bigger picture SoldHMS Anson George V Class Battleship Wheel - HMS Anson was a King George V class battleship of the Royal Navy, named after Admiral George Anson. Designed to counter the perceived threat from Nazi Germany, five ships of this class were commissioned: HMS King George V, HMS Prince of Wales, HMS Duke of York, HMS Howe and HMS Anson. When her keel was laid down at Swan Hunter, Tyne & Wear in 1937 she was to be called HMS Jellicoe but when launched in 1940 the name was changed to Anson. She displaced 42, 600 tons, was 745 feet long and had a beam of 130 feet. She had a top speed in excess of 27 knots and her main armament was 10 x 14 inch Mk V11 guns. HMS Anson was commissioned in 1942 and won Battle Honours in one of the toughest marine environments of WW11, serving in the Arctic 1942-43. Post war, she was the flagship for the 1st Battle Squadron of the British Pacific Fleet and was finally scrapped at Faslane with the surviving ships of her class in 1957/8. This classic six spoke solid teak wheel is engraved on the central brass hub Brown Brothers & Co Ltd Rosebank Edinburgh and is numbered on the reverse 2437. It carries riveted brass banding front and back which has been hand engraved HMS Anson and below the vessel launch date 1940, as well as her Battle Honours Arctic 1942-43. The king post is fitted with a brass thimble to provide a visual indication for the helmsman. The provenance of this wheel is that it was acquired by marine collector extraordinaire Tom Ferrers Walker when Anson was scrapped and was displayed in his collection until his death. It was subsequently purchased directly from his estate and has never been offered on the open market before. Genuine battleship memorabilia hardly every turn up and we are privileged in having acquired this piece of Royal Navy history. Measures 36" diameter (93cm)
3163 Massive Royal Navy White Ensign - Click for the bigger picture SoldMassive Royal Navy White Ensign - Unlike the other flags and pennants we have listed today this one is a monster! We are advised it was issued to the aircraft carrier HMS Ark Royal and was removed as a ‘souvenir’ after winning Battle Honours at Al Faw as part of ‘Operation Iraqi Freedom’ in 2003. The Ark was sadly decommissioned in 2011 and is currently being broken up for scrap near Izmir, Turkey. Looking at the size this story seems entirely likely with the ensign measuring 12’ x 6’ (366 cm x 183 cm).It was made by Zephyr Flags and Banners, Midland Road, Thrapston, Northants and looks to be dated 1999. The flag is fitted with ingfield clips and brass attachment points. It has minor storage marks on the cotton but overall in excellent and possibly unflown condition. Space did not allow us to photograph unfolded for the site but please contact us for further pictures showing it in all its glory!
5441 Royal Navy White Ensign - Click for the bigger picture SoldRoyal Navy White Ensign - A small but beautifully formed example of the Navy’s famous ‘White Duster'. This is made from applied stitched sections of cotton as opposed to the printed version and comes complete with wood toggle tie and flying line. In excellent issued condition. Measures 35” x 17” (89 cm x 43 cm) so an ideal display size for a nautical collection or themed room.
6254 Royal Navy Commissioning Pennant - Click for the bigger picture SoldRoyal Navy Commissioning Pennant - In the Royal Navy the 'commissioning pennant' (which is also called a commissioning pendant) is exactly what it says, and indicates no more nor less than the ship flying it is a warship 'in commission' and not one which is 'in reserve'. It also has the extra benefit of telling an interested observer that the ship flying it is a "private ship" and does not have a Commodore or Admiral on board. This example we were advised came from the ‘O’ class submarine HMS Osiris pennant number S18, which was commissioned in 1962 and sold to Canada in 1992. It is in excellent issued condition and marked beside the wooden toggle 5419971 and on reverse 3 YD BK. Extended it measures 108” (274 cm) which we feel may be a trifle long for submarine use.
4470 Royal Navy White Ensign and Flagstaff - Click for the bigger picture SoldRoyal Navy White Ensign and Flagstaff - We purchased this item from the same Naval family as the Red Ensign which was have also listed today. This is a genuine Naval ‘White Duster’ which is complete with original coir rope. The flagstaff is made from oak with a varnish finish and would appear to have been reduced in length at some stage. Sadly we have no history with it so are unable to say on what ship it originally came from but judging by its size we suspect a smaller vessel such as an Admiral’s barge. The ensign, which is in good clean issued condition, is an ideal display size measuring 35” x 18” (89 cm x 46 cm). The flagstaff is 48” (122cm)
2081 Red Ensign and Flagstaff - Click for the bigger picture SoldRed Ensign and Flagstaff - A genuine ship's ensign in good flown condition but with some minor staining. This comes complete with an original varnished hardwood flagstaff fitted with a securing cleat. This would make an impressive display item in a nautical themed room but likewise is ready to go back to sea! The staff measures 42" (107 cm) whilst the ensign is 36"x 18" (91 cm x 46 cm)
