This fantastic piece is an Authentic Chadburn Engine Order Telegraph, produced in Troy, New York.
This is an authentic ship’s Engine Order Telegraph. This telegraph was used for communication between the bridge or pilothouse and the engine control room. Perfect for the collector or as a unique conversation piece.
This salvaged engine order telegraph measures 46.5 inches tall. The base mount is about 11 inches wide and has six mount holes. The telegraph weighs 95 pounds.
The side panel is missing the original glass that came with this telegraph. The telegraph is in working condition but could be adjusted to perform 100% functional.
Big Ship Salvage scours the world for nautical antique lights, décor and other items related to the Nautical Life. Brass, copper, stainless steel and sometimes aluminum materials are used to make-up the vintage lights and maritime antiques that we find. We soda-blast the old paint off, remove the old wiring and polish before they arrive in our warehouse. Then, we rewire with UL listed bulb sockets and wiring harnesses and get ready for purchase. They are now ready to warm your home, business or restaurant with that nautical feeling we all desire.
