Object ID SLR1892
Description Scale: Unknown. Model of a standard Admiralty pattern anchor circa 1846. The anchor is made of wood and painted black overall. It is secured to a stand by two dowels which fit into two recessed holes in the shank. A paper label has been applied to the side of the shank marked '44'. This is one of two models mounted on the same baseboard and comparing a standard Admiralty pattern (this model) with the design patented by Lt William Rodger in 1846 (SLR2839). The baseboard has been made from wood, with rounded corners on which two plaques have been recessed, one of which is missing. The remaining plaque reads "Lieu. Wm Rodgers patent anchor. 1846." A support for the two anchors is attached to the baseboard by two pillars.
