OVERVIEW

This early ship’s communication device first appeared during the 1800’s and stayed quite relevant all the way through the 1950’s. This beautiful device was used on the bridge of large steam vessels to communicate with the engineers in the engine room. By moving the control levers, it would “ring” the engineers and show them on their gauge the speed at which the captain wanted the ship to be traveling.

Our version stands an impressive 36-3/4” tall with an 11-1/4” color faceplate. It has been made of a sturdy brass which has been given a darkened, aged finish. Two solid wood handles and matching wooden base have a rich, dark stained finish, giving this piece a real feel of authenticity. Working signal bells when handles are moved to the different positions.
