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.
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.
