This Authentic Vintage Ship’s Steering Station was manufactured by Lidgerwood MFG Co of Elizabeth, New Jersey. Lidgerwood Manufacturing has a long and illustrious past starting in 1873 as a continuation of the Speedwell Iron Works of Morristown, New Jersey. Speedwell was established in 1902 by Judge Steve Vail, stepfather of John H. Lidgerwood Sr. In Speedwell Works, the predecessor to Lidgerwood, much of the important engineering work of the early part of the 19th Century occurred. Among the highlights were the development of the electric telegraph and the machinery for the SS Savannah, the first steamship to cross the Atlantic. This relic is made of solid brass, measures 36.5″ tall, and has been engraved by the manufacturer, ensuring its authenticity. As with most vintage steering stations, this gorgeous authentic mahogany ship’s helm is not the original, but it sure makes this awesome collectable complete. Helm measures 34″ in diameter, and the entire relic measures about 50″ tall…We pack and ship worldwide…Please click photos below for better viewing…
