For your consideration is the ‘ANTIQUE SOUVENIR LIFE RING ‘.   Named to the ‘USS HURON ‘.  Interesting naval history.  Originally built in Germany in 1896 and launched as the ‘Norddeutcher’ .  She was siezed by the US Navy in 1917 and renamed the USS Huron.  There was also iron hulled Gun Boat christened the ‘USS Huron’  built in 1875 built in Chester, Penn, later renamed the USS South Dakota… Most probably this life ring would be attributed to later vessel.  8 inches in diameter.  Wood construction.  Near perfect condition with no chips, cracks or hairlines.  Very nice addiition to a maritime or naval decor…

Stuart Johnson Antiques

Located on the island city of Alameda on the San Francisco Bay.
My life as a collector began over 30 years ago, when on a whim, I stopped at a yard sale and happened upon an old ship's compass. I was instantly attracted to the brass, glass and mahogany, as well as the engineering involved in its construction. That interest led me to basements, attics, and long hours sitting at auctions in search of Scientific instruments and unusual antiques.
I'm delighted to be included in the Fleaglass site and will try to present ongoing offerings of science, maritime and technical items of interest. Thank you and enjoy...
