CLINOMETER - Nautical - Bakelite USN Mark III -- FEE AND ST
I am offering an original mid- s USN Clinometer. It is an instrument which indicates the angle of roll or pitch of a vessel. Built by prestigious Fee amp Stemwedel Company it is made of molded Bakelite has a to scale measures x x and weighs pounds. The face is signed as follows CLINOMETER U.S. NAVY BU. SHIPS MK III MOD. O MADE BY FEE AND STEMWEDEL. INC. CHICAGO ILLINOIS . Also the molded back has the remnants of yellow painted printing which appears to read L plus a very tiny maker s triangular stamp CHICAGO MOLDED PROD. CORP with their Trade Mark in the center. Clinometers were usually permanently attached to the bulkhead in the pilothouse or bridge. What makes this particular unique is that it was obviously refitted on a civilian vessel named Lazy Bs which is engraved in script on the face of the pendulum.
