Mid-1900’s two sided mechanical Japanese Engine Order Telegraph. From the ship’s bridge, the “Officer of the Deck” transmitted orders to the engine room to change the engine speed through this device. Based on the units size and design, this telegraph was likely mounted on a twin screw mid-sized ship. It measures 42” high (38” without the handles in the up position) and weighs 50 pounds. The head is mounted on 30½” high cast brass pedestal, which is bolted to a two layer 17”x 3½” wood base. There are dual 6” plastic face plates with the following order commands for both Ahead and Astern: "STAND BY" “STOP” “FINISHED WITH ENGINE” "DEAD SLOW" "SLOW" "HALF" "FULL". The manufacturer’s information reads "ELECTRIC ENGINE TELEGRAPH" "TRANSMITTER" "NIPPON ZOSENKIKAI CO., LTD." " TOKYO". The face plates indicate that the unit is electric, but it has had an early well worn chain-driven mechanical mechanism (including two bells) installed. Only one bell can be heard from time to time.the handles still stop in all the positions but are rather sloppy. The only electric is a small switched 110 volt lamp mounted inside the head, but it does not light up the translucent face plates very well. Once this conversion was made I doubt that it has seen any sea duty, but is a unique decoraative nautical antique. Additional Photos Available - Please Call Cliff @ 760-942-2025
