Porters Pattern anchor by unknown zoom

Porters Pattern anchor

Scale: Unknown. A model of a Porter's patent anchor, 1842, made entirely in brass and plated in white metal. The plating is badly tarnished and very worn. The shank is rectangular in section through which is a single crescent-shaped arm which pivots on a large fidded bolt, held in place by a pin and chain. The upward facing palms are flat and teardrop-shaped and include a small barb on the underside of the arm at its widest point. Just above the arms is a pair of D-shaped gravity shackles which swivel on a bolt. The stock is circular in section, tapering towards its ends, finishing with a sphere at one end and a flat button shape at the other which is bent 90 degrees parallel to the shank. It is fidded with a metal wedge on a small chain allowing it to be un-shipped and stowed flat aboard ship. At the top of the shank is a swivelling bow shackle held in place by a pin.

Original size: 128 mm x 165 mm x 128 mm
