Classic Royal Navy Binnacle
Early 20th Century
Presented is an example of a classic British Royal Navy Binnacle in use at the turn of the 20th Century. We are unable to identify the compass maker in this fine piece as the name on the compass is obscured. We do see the initials W B T in the trademark but are not aware of what that stands for.
This fine piece will make a wonderful addition to a den, study, or office for all those appreciating historical nautical instruments
