Rare Antique Ships Brass Clinometer by James White and Co. of Glasgow. 3" x 1" overall Although this dates from the end of the 19th Century this was from the bridge of the TSS Manxman. It was obviously reused possibly from the previous Manxman we will never know. Manxman’s maiden voyage took place on 21 May 1955, with a sailing from Douglas to Liverpool. From then on, she plied the routes from North West England and North Wales to the Isle of Man and Ireland. The Manxman was cast in the role of RMS Carpathia for the 1979 dramatic film S.O.S. Titanic. Turbine Steam Ship Manxman was a passenger ferry launched from the Cammell Laird shipyard, Birkenhead, on 8 February 1955. She was the final vessel in a class of six similar ships, the Six Sisters, ordered by the Isle of Man Steam Packet Company, and was the second of the Company's ships to carry this name. Your chance to get this very rare piece of maritime history. Great original piece. No major damage, glass intact a few dints and marks commensurate with age.
This exceptional item will make a great display piece for nautical decor.
