5381 HMS Leopard Pewter Bowl - Click for the bigger picture SoldHMS Leopard Pewter Bowl - This item is similar in style and design to the Medusa bowl we have just listed. Named to the ship and broad arrow marked, this is again not dated so we can not identify which vessel this served on but could possibly be from the destroyer of 1897 which was sold out of service in 1919. Diameter 5.5" (13.5cm)
5380 HMS Medusa Pewter Bowl - Click for the bigger picture SoldHMS Medusa Pewter Bowl - We have no idea of actual use but cleary marked with the ship's name as well as a broad arrow property mark. Eight ships of the Royal Navy have carried the name and as the bowl is not dated, diffiult to identify the actual vessel it came from. At a guess, possibly the cruiser launched in 1888 and sold out of service in 1921. Diameter 5.5" (13.5cm)

5098 Boat Badge from HMS Cleopatra - Click for the bigger picture SoldBoat Badge from HMS Cleopatra - Seven ships of the Royal Navy have carried the name Cleopatra which this badge almost certainly came from the D class cruiser of 5, 450 tons which was launched in 1940 and finally went to the breakers in 1958.

Since being removed from one of the ship's boats, it has been nicely mounted on a mahogany display shield.

2128 Brass Tiller Yoke with Fitted Pulley Blocks - Click for the bigger picture SoldBrass Tiller Yoke with Fitted Pulley Blocks - Superbly cast from solid brass, this would have been fitted to the top of the rudder on a rowing skiff, Admiral's barge or similar.

It makes a decorative nautical artefact in its own right but would also look amazing on an appropriate classic small craft - just the job for Henley! Measures 17" (43cm)

The outer rim has been damaged and repaired at some stage, so no longer fit to go to sea but would make an excellent wall decoration. Diameter 27" (68cm)
5037 Kreigsmarine WWII Sea Mine Detonator Horn - Click for the bigger picture SoldKreigsmarine WWII Sea Mine Detonator Horn - This and others like it would have been screwed into a large German sea mine.

This one is empty and is finished in original black paint. Measures 6" (15cm)

We have no history with it but it is an ideal size for use in a nautical display. We have left it in an unpolished state as it came in but would be happy to polish it at no extra charge if required.
