Kreigsmarine Flakglas 12 x 60 - Click for the bigger picture SoldKreigsmarine Flakglas 12 x 60 - A fine set manufactured by Carl Zeiss Jena. These would probably have been mounted on a 4 metre range finder used by coastal artillery and possibly on large ships. They are in good original condition but missing the drop down front shades. The lens rain guards are in place. The optics are crisp but the instrument could possibly benefit from a clean. They carry a clear Kreigsmarine property mark, together with the letter M and IV/I. Finished in battleship grey paint. This set was brought back as a souvenir by a naval officer in WWII and it is the first time they have been offered on the collectors' market.

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.

Trench Art Sea Mine Model - Click for the bigger picture SoldTrench Art Sea Mine Model - Mounted in a hardwood display case with glazed viewing panels. We are not sure if this mine is a copy of an original type but the design appears to be broadly of the contact type used in WWII. It is finely detailed with lifting eyes and detonator horns. Judging by the weight, the body of the mine appears to be made from solid brass, so please check postage with us. This item came from the estate of a retired naval man which included the HMS Amethyst cleat which we have just listed. Case measurement: 7" (17.5 cm)

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!

Desk Set made from teak wood salvaged from HMS Collingwood - Click for the bigger picture SoldDesk Set made from teak wood salvaged from HMS Collingwood - It has a brass plaque confirming the provenance and below another engraved "With the compliments of C.W. Kellock & Co. London & Liverpool". C.W. Kellock were one of the leading shipbrokers established in 1850 and still in business today. Several Royal Naval ships have been named Collingwood but it seems likely these timbers came from the battleship launched in 1908, served at the Battle of Jutland and was broken up in 1922. The two wooden pots may have originally held ink but if so are now lacking the ceramic liners and covers. Measures: 11" x 8" (28 cm x 20 cm)

HMS Pegasus Christening Font & Stand - Click for the bigger picture SoldHMS Pegasus Christening Font & Stand - This is a totally unique and one-off item with the font being made from a seaplane spinner. Pegasus was a seaplane carrier of 3070 tons, launched in 1917 and sold out of service in 1931. She carried a complement of 9 aircraft. Almost certainly made on board, the stand appears to be varnished mahogany with the central spinner in aluminium. A plaque is riveted to the front which carries the Pegasus crest with the engraving "Font made from the nose piece of a seaplane for the christening of Michael Phipps on board HMS Pegasus 13th July, 1918 and presented to Mrs. Phipps by the officers after the ceremony". It is a Royal Navy tradition to occasionally baptise children of serving crew within the upturned bell in which case the child's name was engraved inside. We have never previously heard of an aircraft nose piece being used for this purpose but it provides the ideal receptacle. We assume young Master Phipps (who today would be 90 years old! was the son of a crew member at the end of WWI. The font is in excellent original condition with some ageing to the varnish. We have had this in our own collection for some time and it makes an excellent plant stand with a Christmas Poinsettia! Stands 36" (92 cm) high and diameter at top 16" (40 cm).
