Nautical Items

Whether you are a sailor or you simply appreciate the beauty and function of nautical items, you know how pleasing it is to use and view these pieces. Some people purchase these antique style nautical items purely for their decorative appeal, while others put the functioning pieces into action on the high seas or local lake. 

Our selection of superbly crafted maritime decor includes compasses, sextants, ship wheels, armillary spheres, ship bells and globes. These are very nicely made accessories with a vintage appeal, and yet they are so reasonably priced they would make a terrific gift. Any adventurous young boy would love to receive a compass and be taught how to use it, so he can go off exploring without having to depend on his cell phone maps to find his way home! 

Many of these are made by Old Modern Handicrafts, which is dedicated to keep traditional craftsmanship alive when creating maritime themed accessories and decor. Materials are the ones you would expect to have seen on board a ship a hundred years ago or more, with gleaming brass, strong iron, handsome leather and rugged wood playing a major role. A brass and gold ship bell is an exact replica of one that was on the Titanic, and it hangs from a bracket. A free-standing victory bell is made of solid brass and it is based on the bells that were rung after achieving victory in battle. Stand it in your home and ring the bell to call everyone into dinner! 

Even if you are land-locked, you can mount a 24 inch rosewood and brass ship wheel on your wall to create a traditional look or to create a maritime theme. A handsome antique style globe will also add exotic vintage appeal to your space, and some open up to reveal a chess board hidden inside! 

Whatever your interest, you will love to add these high-quality nautical items to your collection.
