Rare Vintage Walkers II Harpoon Depth Finder Gauge


Thomas Walker & Son "Harpoon II" Depth Finder. These were first made in the late 19th century but the company carried on producing them right up to the 21st century. The later models have plastic dials and are not anywhere near as nice as the older ones. This one looks unused so appears to be newer than it actually is. The dial is enamel and the red outer piece is metal so would probably date from around the 1950s or 60s. Comes in the original wooden box with labels. The box measures 20cm in height, 7cm wide and 14cm in depth. The brass instrument is 17cm in length and 8cm wide. The rope appears to be original, with the original binding. The harpoon is in mint condition and fully marked with the makers plaque and serial number AB7002. All the moving parts work perfectly and the indicator dial looks great. This is truly a rare collectors item which will be an amazing addition to any collection. Great original piece. No major damage, a few dints and marks commensurate with age.
