After all, who can resist putting their hand on one of these authentic engine order telegraphs?  Most of all, it’s an awesome feeling when you are in complete control of the ship when you move the handle to full speed!

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.

If you are into history, or looking for something specific, we have a rare range of products from the Tokimec magnetic compass, to the World War II era Lionel Binnacle. Indeed, a Lionel Binnacle!  During the World War II, they suspended making the toy trains they were famous for, and produced ship parts much needed for our military.
