This large working replica measures 46-1/2" tall, with handles upright and weighs in at over 55 pounds. When placed on the floor the wooden handles are right at your fingertips, while you're standing.
Round solid brass face housing is 14" wide. Depth of housing is 6-3/4". Mountable (pre-drilled) base is 9 inches in diameter.
This terrific, old-world device, provided a time saving communication link between the pilothouse and the engine room.
Both levers are movable and all the normal telegraph markings are visible. Heavy cast gearing and ringers. Also equipped with detents; to hold the handles at each order position. When lever is moved to an order, those heavy ringers make the strong, loud, classic, "ding" sound. Very crisp lasting tone.
This type of telegraph was dedicated to a twin engine, as handles move independently of one another. This is a new, high quality, handmade item, having some minor variations in the finish, suitable for collectors.
