This is an interesting piece we acquired during one of our salvage operations, we believe it is either a vintage salvaged brass paravane, some part of an anchoring system, or something we haven’t thought to look into. We have dug in and tried to do some research but can’t find an exact match. we have been told it is a Paravane (flopper stopper), Part of an anchor, Or Clam Digger.
Although we haven’t quite figured out its exact purpose we think it would be a great landscaping piece.
It is tear-dropped shaped and constructed of solid brass. It is 19 inches long by 12 inches wide and is about 2 inches thick at its thickest point. It has a connection loop at the top. It weighs 44 Lbs.
