Scale: Unknown. A model of a Spencer's proposed anchor (1820-1822). The model is made in wood with a painted lead ring and is painted a uniform black. The shank is square in section and tapers out in a triangular shape towards the crown of the anchor. There is a shoulder just below where the ring passes through the top of the shank. About halfway down the shank it widens to form a triangular-shaped crown through which a large circular bolt passes through securing the pivoting fluke which passes through each side of the aperture in the shank. There is one large triangular-shaped fluke which pivots through the shank on either side also allowing them to be stowed flat on board ship. At the crown of the anchor is a small eye bolt through which a tripping rope can be attached. One paper label (damaged) is attached to the top of the shank by the ring which reads: 'WS September'.
