We have two American made early 20th century brass engine order telegraph made by Kimball Control, removed from a retired tugboat. Each telegraph is marked on the side of the control: Kimball Control, N. 1685, Detroit, Mich. USA. (the second E.O.T. is number 1686). Both of these E.O.T's were salvaged from the same vessel and cut above the pedestal base to remove from the vessel. The shorter handle control commands "IDLE, FULL SPEED & STOP" and the larger handle "NEUTRAL, FORWARD & REVERSE" as engraved on both sides of the top of the telegraph housing. Each telegraph stands 22 inches tall to the top of the housing and 34 inches to the top of the tallest handle. The wooden base measures 5 1/2 inches in diameter. Wonderful small size for displaying in your nautical room or office!

We've left the old, darkened brass patina alone, but you could have these polished to a bright finish if desired. Both telegraphs come with an unfinished custom-turned hardwood base for floor or tabletop display. We have left these unstained so the purchaser can choose a finished color. The wooden bases are similar but not matching. Priced per telegraph with two available.
