Cape Horn Anchor – Brass

The Authentic Models Cape Horn Anchor would make a lovely paper weight or ornament on a desk in a sophisticated gentleman’s office. Expand on the nautical theme by pairing it with a compass, sundial or sextant.

Sailors would be gone for months or even years, and their return home was often a joyful and festive occasion for their family and friends. European coastal towns would announce the safe homecoming of their sailor friends by displaying a small iron or brass anchor next to the family cottage entrance. The priest would then often bless these little achors during church services before the sailor left for another new and uncertain voyage, to wish them luck and a safe return. These anchors have come to symbolise hope, family ties and friendship for seafaring folk.

Absolutely wonderful customer services and excellent support. I wanted a specific gansey jumper and could not find it anywhere. They were fantastic, found the jumper for me and sent it to me express delivery yesterday afternoon. Royal Mail excelled and it arrived to our surprise this morning. It is exactly what was wanted and I can't thank you enough for all your help.
