This antique sea chest may very well have travelled thrice around the world of further during its life....all the while keeping its contents safe and sound as any attempt to unlock it and the integral bell sounds - thus alerting the owner or anyone else withing earshot that that there is a thief about. Locks of this nature were available, especially, for sea chests in those days but this is the first we have owned that returns one - most having been replaced many moons ago. We have given its country of origin as English but it could alterniatively well be American.

c1750 long case clock by Adam Cleak of Bridport
Extremely rare engraving of Admiral Horatio Nelson's water borne funeral procession of January 8th 1806. Published less than one month later, on February 1st 1806, by G. Thompson of Long Lane, West Smithfield. Condition is generally grubby with some smallish tears to periphery and paper loss to lower right corner. It is back onto stout rag type paper of the period and was at one time the property of a Captain Davis of Solyhull. Unframed and no attempt has be made to clean or restore so should respond well in the right hands. Pre-dates the better known and larger print from the same view point by George Thompson that was published nearly two months later on March 28th and was thus in the nature of a preliminary proof print to envisage how the worked up and finished work would appear. This very rare print does have some condition issues but is priced accordingly. Dimensions approximately 370 by 470mm

Portsmouth British Navy - 1750 engraving.
Painting of the Hudson Bay Company's ship the S.S. Beaver - signed with the initials T.H. Reframed in more modern times but with period label attached verso. Some minor foxing,as evident in photos, but otherwise in good condition. Built in England, the SS Beaver undertook a week’s steam trials in the English Channel on June 25th, 1835 and passed them with flying colours. She subsequently made the long 225 day journey around the Horn with her machinery and paddlewheels dismantled. She was rigged as a brigantine and proved to be an excellent sea vessel. She sailed up to Fort Vancouver on April 10th, 1835, and raised steam in the following May. For the next 52 years she navigated the waters of the Pacific Northwest, first as a trading vessel and eventually as a freighter and tug. She was the first steamship in the north Pacific. The SS Beaver was, according to one marine historian, one of the most historic vessels ever built. Indeed, the whole history of the British Columbia coast, for half a century, is linked to the career of this sturdy pioneer steamboat. Referred to by one archivist as possibly the sturdiest craft of her size as was ever afloat, the Beaver was the steamer-flagship of the Hudson’s Bay Company of England, and truly ruled the rugged coastline of the Pacific Northwest until 1888. It sported two 35-horsepower wood-fuelled steam engines, and consumed 1 cord of wood to travel close to one mile. For a full day’s cruise it burned about 35 cords. On December 21, 1870, the SS Beaver was taken out of commission and handed over to the Hudson’s Bay Company. Four years later she was auctioned off and finished her career as a tug and supply vessel until she was wrecked off Prospect Point in 1888.

A rather splendid old Gladstone bag by the esteemed makers Drew & Sons of Piccadilly. Has seen much use over its 100 or more years but still remains usable despite the outer stitching of two end corners having come apart as well as one end of the side pocket's flap (seen in photos) - a rather floppy (but ORIGINAL) handle too.. This superior quality piece of luggage, rather than no lining at all or one in printed fabric, has one of ox blood hued leather with a small amount of gold tooling. Price includes postage to an UK mainland address.
