This is a trio of Vintage American Brass Gauges-Mounted On Wood all made by American companies.
The center piece, proudly displaying a 1928 manufacturing date, is a 5″ brass water pressure gauge from the Grinnell Company in Providence, Rhode Island.
To the left, you’ll find a 4″ steam pressure gauge by the Geo. W. Zastrow Company in Baltimore, MD, bearing the stamp of the American Steam Gauge and Valve Manufacturing company—a common feature for gauges using parts from the American S.G. & V. MFG. Co.
Completing the set, the third brass gauge, a steam gauge from the Kenneth Anderson Manufacturing Company in Detroit, Michigan, stands out with a valve part from the Ashcroft company, breaking from the typical use of ASGV parts.
This item is being sold on consignment for a private collector from Cleveland. Every item has been well-preserved due to the owner’s deep love of nautical history. You’ll find some very interesting pieces in this collection – items that might not be found anywhere on the Internet
