18" Brass Ship Engine Telegraph 110 v.

Expected arrival date is May 31st 2021

With 110 volt lighting. Power cord stores, and comes directly out of the bottom of the base. There is a notch in the brass base to allow the cord to rest inside of and make a flush floor mount. Comes assembled, well packaged, and ready to display. This terrific, old-world ship's telegraphs device, provided a time saving communication link between the pilothouse and the ships' engine room.

This is an exceptional high quality solid polished brass working replica. All the classic telegraph markings are visible and readable. It has detentes, to hold the handles at each point, and makes the classic "ding" sound as the lever is moved to an order.

Measures: 19" tall with handles extended upward x 7" wide solid brass casing. Readable red, black, and white face measures 5-3/4" across (both sides).

Telegraph weight is about 9 lbs. Bulb replacement is reasonably straightforward.

This type of telegraph was dedicated to twin engines, as each moves independently of the other. This is a new item suitable for collectors.

Instructions to change the bulb. There are 4 screws, that connect the top of the telegraph to the base. By removing the 4 screws, you can lift the top portion off and switch out the light bulb. And just reverse the steps to put it back together.

    Engine Room Telegraph

    Posted by Lawrence Adams on Aug 20th 2020

    I am very pleased with the brass Engine Room Telegraph. I had some questions before purchasing it. The folks at Nautical Decor Store were extremely helpful and courteous. They also take the time to pack things more carefully than others before shipping. I have nothing but high praise for Nautical Decor Store.
