EARLY SCHRADER COMMERCIAL DIVING HELMET Ca 1930!

   

TOTAL WEIGHT 39 1/2 lbs  BONNET 17 lbs  BREAST PLATE 22 1/2 lbs
 
STAND NOT INCLUDED

Presented
is an early A. Schrader & Son, Inc of Brooklyn, NY commercial helmet. It was Schrader's
practice not to number their bonnets. The serial number on the maker's tag was lightly struck, but the first
two and the last digits can be made out in proper light, and the third digit can be seen with a loupe.
We believe the serial number is 1038. The patina on this helmet is in shades of black on the bonnet
and breast plate with some reddish undertones. It is in excellent condition and is complete with its original telephone and butterfly style wing nuts. All moving parts function. The front door screws out, but needs to be freed-up. The 
communication fitting on the back is marked Craftsweld. The helmet comes from the family of a professional diver where it was for the last 50 or more years.

 
CONDITION: In excellent shape for a helmet that has served in commercial service and is over 75 years old. The air passages are all intact. The chin button is in place and functions properly. The bonnet shows only a small dents and many small dimples as would be expected. The left knob on the front door is a recent replacement.  A number of items have been removed from front of the bonnet such as lashing eyes, and hooks. These appear to have been professionally done by a factory and are not field modifications. The nuts used appear to be the original.
 
Like all used diving gear, this is being sold for DISPLAY ONLY. It should not be dived without having passed inspection by a certified dive ship.
 
 

              Schrader tag, number 1038?
                             All vents intact

   WE ALSO HAVE A 1913 SCHRADER BONNET FOR SALE. CLICK

BRIEF HISTORY OF A. SCHRADER'S & SON: August Schrader arrived in New York in August of 1840 from Hamburg, Germany where he was a mechanic. By 1844, he had opened a shop at 115 John St in Manhattan making parts for taking daguerreotype photographs. Shortly thereafter, Christian Baecher joined the company. Baecher was a metal worker in brass.

 

In 1846, Schrader took an interest in an underwater race in lower Manhattan off "The Battery". After inspecting the divers equipment he decided that he could make improvements and better helmets. By 1849, Schrader had made two helmets which he sold to the Union India Rubber Co. of New York for $12.00 each. More orders were to follow. He produced an improved air pump in 1856, and now was well underway in the diving equipment business.

 

During the onslaught of World War Two only Morse and Schrader were making dive helmets for the Navy. DESCO and Miller-Dunn came into the picture as the War progressed.

 

In 1952, the company was sold to Craftsweld Manufacturing Corp. In 1999 Craftsweld sold the assets of Schrader to Atlantic Diving Equipment,Co., but kept the use of the Schrader name.

 

Based on excerpts from the book, "100 Years of Air Control, 1844-1944", by A. Schrader's & Son"
