ANTIQUE, SAILING SHIP, 2 DOUBLE PULLEY BLOCKS, ORIGINAL HEMP ROPE, & HARDWARE:
$46

ANTIQUE, SAILING SHIP, TWO DOUBLE PULLEY BLOCKS, ORIGINAL HEMP ROPE & HEAVY DUTY METAL HARDWARE, CIRCA: 1910??: Many years ao, I acquired this double pulley block assembly at an estate sale sale. The item was touted as being equipment used on old sailing ships. I am no authority on sailing ships and their equipment, so I have no idea if that allegation is correct or not! My eight photos will give you an excellent idea as to the appearance and overall physical condition of this double pulley block assembly, its original length of hemp rope, and its heavy duty metal hardware. Both pieces of metal hardware have the same identifiers stamped into them. Their legends read, as Arrow "A" indicates: MADE IN U.S.A. BUFFALO IRIE NO. 1 MARK PAT, D F?? . The stampings are not perfectly clear, but I have made them out as best as I can. My Arrow "B" points to the legend: WESTERN ELECTRIC PAT. U.S. NOV. 29, 1910 CAN. JUNE 19, 1911 MADE IN U.S.A. . The two wooden double pulley blocks have been made by the same manufacturer and display the same identifiers. One side of these double pulley blocks displays a metal disk with a star embossed on the disk. The other side of the double pulley blocks have identifers printed on them in black ink, but it is impossible to make out all the letters on these identifiers! I am pretty sure the word BELOW the center pin of each pulley block is: BRONZE . There is a word printed cross the center of these two wooden pulley blocks that begins with the letters: G R A ? ? I O D ? I am not at all sure about the last three letters. The 7/16 inch diameter hemp rope is original to this double pulley block assembly and is in its original configuration as when I acquired this old sailing ship related item many years ago. I have no idea how much hemp rope is represented between the two wooden double pulley blocks. If the patent dates on the metal hardware attached to this double pulley block assembly are an indication of its age, this assembly is over 100 years old!!!! Still, this pulley assembly is in EXCELLENT-PLUS condition!! SEMPER FI!!
