Set of Two Mini-tankards in Wooden Presentation Box - DG 15658

Tankards in Wooden Presentation Box

Mini-tankards in Wooden Presentation Box

A very popular nautical gift. These brass mini tankards are presented in a natural wooden box and should, in our opinion, only be filled with the Captain's spiced Navy rum! A maritime nautical feature for the office desk or home mantlepiece. These little tankards probably hold about 125 ml of fluids each. A great stylish nautical gift idea!

£25

 

Set of Two Whisky Shots in a Presentation Box - DG15663 

Whisky Shots in a Presentation Box

Whisky Shots in a Presentation Box

To complement our mini tankards, these brass whisky shot glasses come in a high quality presentation wooden box and could quite probably also be used for drinking rum! These whisky shot glasses make a great marine gift.

Henry the Hermit Crab  - DG2250

Henry the Hermit crab

Henry the Hermit crab


Designed in hand painted wood (the shell) and tin (Henry himself), he certainly sits serenely in his wooden shell, but he's probably got his eye on a larger shell elsewhere along the shore! What an unusual nautical gift and fun talking point.

Percy's Dad - DG3076 


We all knew that Percy's dad was going to eventually make an appearance on the Dorset Gifts website. We didn't know where and we didn't know when, but this statuesque piece of nautical tin art has arrived on the Nautical Gifts Page and stands an impressive and proud 25 cms in height. He's 17 cms at his very very widest and 5 cms deep. Happiest when dancing (as pictured) - he enjoys watching mayonaisse being made in the kitchen.

Sammy The Seahorse - DG2856

We've been out searching attractive seahorse products and this one stands proud on a wooden base at a good 20 cms in height. We have some real Sammy Seahorses here on the Dorset coast (spiny seahorses). They arrive at Studland in Spring to breed and then leave in the Autumn. So Sammy is Sammy the Studland Seahorse really, or he could be. Numbers of the real ones are down sadly and some believe this is due to their natural habitat being eroded by boat anchors. We have limited numbers of Sammy though and he looks great out of water and in your coastal home.

Sammy's base is made of wood and Sammy himself is textured covered shaped tin.

20.5 x 7 x 5 cms

Angie the Angel Fish Metal Plaque - DG17472

 

 

We love a metal plaque at Dorset Gifts - we love some more than others though and although this isn't our favourite, it is our best seller! Check out the blue metal marlin though, it's just as American! In the meantime, at 51 cms in length ad 36 cms high, here's Angie.

£29.95 each


 

Blue Metal Marlin Plaque - DG17474

 

 

Don't be put off by what looks to be a bargain price! Our importers for this item have been coming to the market for over 50 years. For over fifteen years we have been joining them and these blue metal marlin plaques have been a good call for a touch of the nautical within us. It's stylish and very Key West without the surcharge.

A terrific nautical gift idea!

Wooden Ship's Wheel - DG7335

Wooden Ship's Wheel

Wooden Ship Wheel


Heard the one about the pirate who walks in to a bar with a wooden ship's wheel attached to the front of his trousers? The barman says to the pirate..."What's the ship's wheel for?" and the pirate replies "I haven't got a clue but it's driving me nuts". Well we have now decided to sell these Wooden ship's wheels at Dorset Gifts just so that you can break the ice, crack the joke and not get a laugh too. These wooden ship's wheels are a substantial 62 centimetres in circumference and don't come polished like our others but with a natural rustic look. Great as nautical wall decor and a must if you are looking for nautical design ideas but not recommended as a spare ship's wheel on your boat! These ships wheels make great marine gifts but are for decorative purposes only!

Fleet Review Telescope - DG7166

Fleet review telescope

The ultimate feature window piece for any home with a nautical setting. In the early 1900s grand clifftop and seaside homes would of course have been considered incomplete without an impressive brass and wooden telescope on the balcony to view the ships sailing past. You can still pick the antique ones up, but they have become very expensive collectors’ pieces. More often than not in the beachside homes you will perhaps occasionally see our reproductions which have been specially made by a former colonial manufacturer who still produces them for his home market. They are of course popular and sought after due to the elegant styling and the fact that this is a functional item, magnifying 25 times with an object lens of 45 mm. Focusing is by finger-tip twist control, from about 40 yeards to infinity. The sheesham wood tripod, which is similar in appearance and feel to teak, has solid brass fittings and is height adjustable on each leg to compensate for uneven surfaces. The brass barrel length is 1 metre and the tripod height adjustable from approximately 110 to 180 centimtres. Time to watch the ships sail past?

£559 each

 

Harbour Master Telescope - DG7165

Harbour Master telescope


This is a smaller version of the Fleet Review telescope above which would give a maritime themed touch to a desk or table.
