LOT 0057

Civil War era Ship's Loudhailer - Megaphone.

[ translate ]

Mid 19th century 20 inch long tin megaphone crudely made of folded and soldered tin. It likely had an attached mouthpiece around the small end as that area is quite jagged. This size megaphone is what was used on early sailing ships. I have attached a photo of one from HMS Ajax used 200 years ago. I've also attached related images for illustration.Add $25.00 for materials, packing, and shipping. Insurance is $1.50 per $100. UPS signature service is $6.50 -- NO SHIPMENTS OUTSIDE USA --
Condition Report: Very good
