Antiques and Nautical Collectibles at Lannan Ship Model Gallery

There are innumerable niches and categories to consider when collectible items are being discussed. Antiquarians are a special breed who search the world to find pieces to add to those eclectic collections.

For those impassioned toward nautical artifacts, the Lannan Ship Model Gallery in Boston has a 6,000 square-foot gallery with more than 400 model ships and various marine-related items.

This is a journey for enthusiasts of ship models and marine memorabilia that is unfathomable. There are paintings and a plethora of nautical antiques that puts you right at sea level, including binnacles, engine-room telegraphs, compasses, telescopes and barometers.

It could take an aficionado, or an inquisitive patron of the arts, days to mill about the displays of sea-inspired art and salt-sprayed antediluvian watercraft-related mechanisms. The barometers, navigational devices and ship steering wheels provide ample fodder for a voyage of epic proportions that is "see" worthy indeed.

Visit the "Other Marine and Decorative" section of the company's website to see some rare items such as signage from pubs and taverns, ship's deck buckets, foghorns, ship's badges, sea chests and captains' lockers.
