The engine order telegraph is often referred to simply as a telegraph on the bridge of the ship. It is the instrument used to communicate the captain’s orders with the men in the engine room below.  Ships can have more than one telegraph on board and usually sounded bells that allowed the ship’s captain, the engine room, and the bridge to be in alignment with the captain’s orders.

We stock a great selection of authentic ship’s compasses as well. These liquid filled compasses were used less and less with the introduction of GPS.  In addition, these intact compasses are in great condition making ours is a rarity and a perfect addition to any nautical or coastal theme.
