This is a Boxed CASSENS & PLATH Vintage Ship Logge. The company was founded in Bremen in 1902 by Captain Tanne Janssen Cassens. A Ship-Log is an instrument for measuring the speed of a ship through water.
The wood container has two black coated taffrails(Propellers) with attached ropes, one log watch with deck shoe, a regulator wheel and the ship-log. On the Ship-Log face you will find the words Cassens & Plath and Logge.
Everything in the box is in great condition. The log is in good shape with some wear on it, and the deck shoe looks good. The box has seen better days. You will see in the photos that the top of the box is coming apart but the sides are still holding up.
If you are looking for a nautical item that has a vintage look to it then this is it. A great piece to add to your nautical collection!
