19th Century Bosuns Persuader £145

A fine example of an incredibly sturdy bosuns persuader, these pieces are famous for being used as a badge of rank, a weapon and also used in the act of press-ganging and shanghaiing people to impress them into naval service.

This example is made of three twisted pieces of baleen capped with two weighted tarred cord heads. This piece can be yours for £145 or best offer.
