This is a Solid Brass Fan Anemometer And Wind Vane Sensor that was salvaged off of a once working vessel. It is called a vane anemometer which means it uses a propeller and a tail on the same axis to obtain accurate and precise wind speed and directions from the same instrument.
The vane anemometer and its propeller both spin freely. As you can see from the photos there are are few indentions in the brass. Also, on the base there is a plaque that says- Fan Anemometer And Wind Vane Sensor(Generator And Seleyn), Model N:162 D, Range- 2,10,60., Rating-D C 12., Date-Oct. 92, NO 92 x 66.1. and Nippon Electrit Instrument.
