This Fine Binnacle Has Been Sold. Thank You!
 
VERY RARE ANTIQUE
“LADY'S WAIST“
HENRY BROWNE ~ SESTREL TWIN BURNER, THREE PORT BINNACLE, Ca 1870
 

Your chance to get a fine quality “Lady's Waist“ style collector binnacle at a very reasinable price. This binnacle is perfect for the serious collector or as a focal point in your decor.
This fine Henry Browne & Son, Ltd., Barking, London binnacle is in excellent condition. The base is high grade re-finished Walnut. The brass hood and casement show the normal wear of service at sea with some minor dents and abrasions, but nothing of significance. They have just been polished and lacquered for your enjoyment. The fully gimbaled Sestrel “Dead Beat“ compass is the type that was used in great quantity during WW II and is likely a upgrade fitted after the War. It has a bubble and some minor sediment in the solution. which can easily be remedied. There is one small chip on the corner of the base, but that is the only imperfection.
 
This wonderful piece is of a very early design and features twin burner housings, one on each side, and three opening ports. There is a circular port with cover on the backside, a larger triangular port facing the helmsman, and a circular cap over the round port on the hood's top.  The “Lady's Waist” style is rarely seen, and the appearance is very striking compared to the binnacles which are most prevalent today. Only one lamp is present, and it is a reproduction of the correct size and shape. It is missing its lens, but is complete with a small kerosene burner.


DIMENSIONS:

Binnacle                         56" maximum height
Wood Base                    34" High ~ 15' x 15" at widest
Top Width                       32" ball to ball

Compass                       10“ diameter
Card                                  7 1./2“ diameter

Estimated Weight          125 pounds
 
             Large 7 1/2” compass in 10“ bowl
               Small Chip ~ Only Imperfection

HENRY BROWNE & SON, Ltd.: of Barking, London in Essex is a well respected English instrument maker that has been making and selling fine quality compasses, ship's clocks, inclinometers, sextants, and chandlery items for over 140 years. The Trade Mark brand Sestrel is used on all their equipment, not just their compasses. Their “Dead Beat“ compass design is well dampened and serves to reduce oscillations. It is reported that this design compass was fitted to many Allied ships during WW II. Over the more recent years, there has been a consolidation of British instrument makers and the firm of Henry Browne & Son has changed hands a number of times. At last count, it became part of Lillie & Gillie of London for what may be the second time.
