Vintage Tall Ship’s Aluminium & Brass Pelorus Stand with Gimbal Slave Compass

£950.00 (inc VAT)

The largest piece of reclaimed nautical history we’ve stocked. This imposing aluminium pelorus stand with gimbal slave compass is so tall, I can rest my elbows comfortably on the brass railing. (I’m six feet tall.)

If you’re a collector of maritime antiques, or are looking for a sculptural artwork with a story to tell that will immediately wow your visitors – this is it. We bought it purely because it looks so amazing.

We have wired the compass to a UK mains plug and switch, so the dial illuminates (see image). Being a slave compass, this will NOT work as a magnetic compass – it is purely for decorative purposes.

We cannot ship this item for free, given its unusual size. Please contact us for a shipping quote to your destination prior to purchase, or we can provide the same after purchase and invoice.

Dimensions: 1.36m tall.
