Antique Stocked Admiralty Anchor From 1800's Us Navy Sailing Tall Ship For Sale

Antique Stocked Admiralty Anchor From 1800's Us Navy Sailing Tall Ship

Here is a rare opportunity to own a unique piece of nautical history.
This anchor would be a perfect centerpiece for a US Navy Base, Museum, Estate, Marine Center, Yacht Club, Restaurant, or any other publicly viewed property.

Based on my research, this anchor is a stocked Admiralty anchor, also known as a Fisherman anchor with a long-shank design.

This type of anchor was used by Americans and the British from about 1831 to 1860.

The Charleston Navy Yard displays two similar anchors (though larger) and states that this type of anchor was no longer used after 1850.

I purchased it more than ten years ago at an estate sale in King George County, Virginia, near the Dahlgren Navy Base. The owners were selling their estate and moving to Florida. They purchased it many years before from the Dahlgren Navy Base at a public sale. My best estimate is that it came from a wooden, US Navy sailing ship and was used about 1850.

Size: As seen in the photos, the longest dimension is 80 inches long. The width, from ball to ball is 69 inches. The height from the ground to the top of the other fluke is 52 inches. The estimated weight is between 1100 and 1400 lbs.

The sale will be canceled if I haven't heard from the purchaser within three days, or haven't received payment in seven days.
No Returns.
This item is subject to prior sale.
I will manage the shipping and delivery to your location at a cost of up to $600. Anything more than that the buyer will be responsible for. After you buy the anchor, and I know your location, I will calculate the shipping and send you an invoice for the total. Please allow up to two weeks for delivery.
