Frame stock anchor - shank hollowed out 1829
Scale: Unknown. Model of an anchor with a metal frame stock (circa 1829). Model is made entirely from brass with a lacquered finish and consists of a rectangular shank with rounded edges which taper towards the crown. The shank supports a triangular-shaped frame, the lower part of which is the stock passing through the shank at right angles to the flukes just above the crown. By releasing a bolt held by a copper wedge fid at the top of the frame and the same on the shank, the stock can be un-shipped and stowed flat on board ship. The arms are the conventional, angular, crescent-shape, with a pair of rounded triangular-shaped flat palms on the top face mounted at approximately 40 degrees to the shank. The top of the shank finishes with a rounded end and is drilled to take a swivelling d-shackle anchor ring with a copper wedge fid. There is a travelling collar on the shank with a pair of drilled lugs presumably for fitting gravity shackles for use when handling and stowing the anchor. One of three anchor models with stocks mounted through the shank close to the palms, see SLR2028 and SLR2030.
