THIS IS A VINTAGE Heavy Brass Replica OF A “CHADBURNS” LIVERPOOL & LONDON SHIPS TELEGRAPH. The Chadburns logo is molded into the top. THE BELLS RING DEPENDING ON WHICH LEVER IS BEING OPERATED, JUST LIKE THE FULL-SIZE TELEGRAPHS. The story that I have heard is that THESE DISPLAY TELEGRAPHS WERE Salesman Samples SCALED DOWN TO ABOUT 1/5TH THE SIZE OF THE ORIGINAL TELEGRAPHS AND WERE USED AS SALES DISPLAYS IN CHADBURNS CORPORATE AND SALES OFFICES. They WERE GIVEN AS GIFTS TO SOME OF THEIR CUSTOMERS WHO OUTFITTED THEIR SHIPS WITH CHADBURNS EQUIPMENT DURING THE 1940’S/50’S. THIS SHIPS TELEGRAPH IS NOT A CHEAP REPRODUCTION. IT IS MADE OF HEAVY CAST BRONZE AND BRASS IN THE SAME DETAIL AS THE FULL SIZE TELEGRAPH. There IS A working LIGHT INSIDE THAT Illuminates THE TELEGRAPH’s Bilateral Faces. The lenses are Real Glass. A BEAUTIFUL UNIQUE AND EYE-CATCHING MARITIME CENTERPIECE. THIS TELEGRAPH STANDS APPROX. 19 TALL, IS 7 INCHES WIDE ACROSS THE DISPLAY FACE. Wood Base is 10.5 x 8.5 Oval.
