This terrific, old-world ship telegraph device, provided a time saving communication link between the pilothouse and the ships' engine room.
High quality solid polished brass working replica. Both levers are moveable and all the normal telegraph markings are visible and readable. Heavy cast gearing and bells. Also equipped with detents; to hold the handles at each point. When lever is moved to an order, those heavy bells make an authoritive, crisp, classic, "ding" sound.
This type of telegraph was dedicated to a twin engine, as both handles move independently of one another. This is a new item suitable for the most discriminating collector. A real treasure to behold.
