We rarely offer reproductions,
but this tiller, a copy of very expensive examples which most people can’t afford or many others wouldn’t know about
is an exception, because so few of them are seen. It is a handsomely
carved wood small yacht or launch
tiller following the English tradition of the last decade of the 1800’s when fancy carved wood steering tiller’s were
in style. 

It is hand
carved in the form of a three strand hemp line (rope) with a monkey fist at the forward end. The aft end is in the form of
a four sided wedge tapering to approximately a two inch rectangle. The rear section slides into the rudder head.  The
only thing that gives the authenticity of this tiller away, is the type of wood used which is a form of English
pine. Otherwise, it looks and feels to be the real thing which would sell for $2500.00 and up as is shown by the two carved
tillers below.

The upper picture
is of a tiller sold by James D. Julia in 2006 to a famous Connecticut antique dealer and the lower is currently offered by
the upscale Cape Cod marine dealers, Janice Hyland & Alan Granby.
