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

Mini-tankards in Wooden Presentation Box

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.

£25

 

Set of Two Whisky Shots in a Presentation Box - DG15663

Brass Pocket Sundial - DG4568

Brass pocket sundial

This brass pocket sundial is a completely self-contained portable instrument, with a compass for alignment and lid for protection. The gnomon is set for latitudes around 50 degrees North, so will be at its most accurate where it is being shipped from ... the South of England, as well as Northern Europe, Canada and so on. At these latitudes it is a functioning time indicator in as much as sundials can be! The diameter is 7 cms, the height is 3 cms and it is made of chunky solid brass. Buy one for your boss and you may always have an excuse for being late for work. We can engrave the lids with a name, initials or company logo – please email for details and costs.

Ships Wheel Clock in Brass- DG6763N

24 cms diameter from spoke to spoke and apologies for having to go a little over £100 but still feel very good value for a machined brass clock set within the hub of a wooden brass ship's wheel.

£119 each

 

Ships Time Clock- DG7115N

Ships Time Clock within a hard wood Ship's wheel and excellent interior nautical décor for those with a sea theme in mind.  External diameter is 63 cms tip to tip.  Porthole diameter is 19 cms.

Lulworth Model Yacht

A racing cutter with a Dorset connection! This gaff rigged cutter was built in Southampton in 1920 and if you're looking to buy a boat as a present with West Country connections for somebody, this should probably be the one. The boat's name does of course come from the family at Lulworth Castle of current Camp Bestival fame but at one time, the second owners of this beautiful boat. We have connections with Lulworth Castle too, because it's where we walk our dog! The cliff top walk from the village car park to Durdle Door is recommended, but back to the boat... Due to wood shortages after the First World War, the original lower mast had to be made of steel instead of spruce wood. In 1924 the rig had to be re-designed with a wooden lower mast and went on to achieve much racing success. She was saved from the scapheap in 1947 and finally re-launched in 2006 (bit like some of the acts at Camp Bestival). She is now the world's largest racing cutter. This beautiful classic model of the Lulworth has lovely cloth sails and an attarctive light coloured wooden hull. A great classic model yacht for window displays or as a toy for a big boy!

This model yacht is available in two sizes:

DG14062 - 120cms long x 120cms high - £99 each
DG14063 - 66cms long x 72cms high - £59 each

Enterprise was one of the American J Class yachts and built in 1930. Her towering majestic rigs would have left race watchers spellbound in that golden era of big race sailing. On our models we like the bright white sails and blue and white hull. You will also note a pencil thin red line on the white painted part of the hull. A classic racing yacht.

Nautical Signs

Nautical Sign Gone Fishing

Nautical Sign Gone Sailing

Nautical Sign Gone Diving

Nautical Sign Gone Swimming

Our four best selling nautical signs can hang from the ceiling or walls by the thick seafaring rope you can see in the images. They all sell well and perhaps "Gone Fishing" sells best with an estimated three million (!!) UK anglers as potential recipients of one of these. These measure just under 19 inches in length and the depth of each sign is just under 5 inches, so a good impact from these attractive handpainted signs. The little wooden central inserts set them apart and add a bit of style to the decoration. They're all hand made and hand painted...no two are exactly the same. Ideal seaside style decoration for the beach style themed room or nautical bathroom!

£13.50 each
£22 for 2

The Gone Diving sign is currently OUT OF STOCK.

We know, the "Lost Wife and Dog" classic has very little to do with the sea or the coast, but it's up there creating the biggest chuckles in the shop amongst the chaps while their good ladies are on a spending mission. These wooden signs with a metal hanger come in a nice off white colour.

Please e mail enquiries@dorsetgifts.com for larger sizes, best prices and photographs personalized to your enquiry. We aim to not be beaten on price.

7.5 inches by 6 inches each
