VICTORIAN BRITISH YACHT BINNACLE
Charming British yacht binnacle with mushroom-shaped hood.
The pedestal is made of mahogany and consists of nine surfaces with two brass brackets for mounting on deck or in the wheelhouse.
Nice neat dry card with English abbreviations of the wind directions.
The binnacle is equipped with the original still working oil lamps with beautiful pierced chimneys.
I took several pictures with the oil lamps burning, they illuminate the compass card with soft orange light.
There are hardly any really beautiful binnacles in that expressive mushroom model anymore.
A very interesting binnacle for sloop or yacht.
