Discover our outstanding collection of fine ships’ Binnacles and Compasses.  

We offer examples in excellent condition and are ready for inclusion in the finest collections.  

They are great reminders of our extensive seagoing heritage.  We will include such makers as Henry Brown, Dent, Hughes, Bliss, James O White, Wilford White, and Negus.

Dry Card compasses are a  particularly fine reminder of very early seagoing life, and besides the American makers, you find English makers such as Henry Brown, Dent, Heath, Hughes, William Thomson, and James White and other manufacturers.

There is a very brisk market in these highly sought-after diving collectibles, so don’t expect them to be on the market for long. Heading the list of helmets in demand are those of DESCO, Morse, Miller-Dunn, and Schrader in the United States. From Europe, look for Siebe Gorman, Heinke, Medi, Hagenuk, Draeger, Petit, Piel, Galeazzi, and Robison from Australia, and John Date from Canada.
