  1. My friend said "Here is why I can't go with cloak button. This is an antique Victorian cloak button. Note the elaborate design around the edges and the overall thickness of the metal. This is more like a brooch, an ornamental jewellery piece, and I suspect they were made more from semi precious/ precious metals and stones."
  2. This morning I was chatting with a curator of the Museum and I am waiting for results, probably the piece will be sent to the museum for better analysis..another thing is not a button from a cloak for sure.
  3. It's incredible how some people react regardless of the situation we live in. I have received a package from Syren in a week and the waiting time does not affect me ... but some drown in a glass of water...
  4. Thank you gentlemen, just contact the National Museums Scotland..
  5. A friend in Scotland, Brora specifically, walking along the beach discovered this piece, from what he told me it is made of bronze and it would seem to be the handle of a closet or similar. The design is a nautilus shell among what I believe is a collection of shells. What else could it be off? The obverse shows what I believe is where it was attached to a drawer or similar. One faint possibility is a French sloop, Le Prince Charles Stewart, an ex Royal Navy ship the Hazard which had been captured in Montrose and renamed. It was carrying gold for the Jacobites from France. It was intercepted by the Sheerness and chased into the Kyle of Tongue where it ran aground. Someone may have seen something similar and can help me identify this piece. I will be grateful in advance ...
  6. It can also be treated using shoe polish, there are a wide variety of shades.
  7. Unfortunately is only in Apple TV...No Netflix,Prime Video or Hulu. But,you can opt for their one-week free trial and watch Greyhound for free
  8. My sincere condolences to family and friends. Thank you for your great contribution to this community, your legacy will remain among us as a reminder of the great person you were.
  9. I would take the measure of where should rest on the false keel and cut instead of placing it and lowering the excess on top, I think it would be easier.

About the NRG

If you enjoy building ship models that are historically accurate as well as beautiful, then The Nautical Research Guild (NRG) is just right for you.

The Guild is a non-profit educational organization whose mission is to “Advance Ship Modeling Through Research”. We provide support to our members in their efforts to raise the quality of their model ships.

The Nautical Research Guild has published our world-renowned quarterly magazine, The Nautical Research Journal, since 1955. The pages of the Journal are full of articles by accomplished ship modelers who show you how they create those exquisite details on their models, and by maritime historians who show you the correct details to build. The Journal is available in both print and digital editions. Go to the NRG web site (www.thenrg.org) to download a complimentary digital copy of the Journal. The NRG also publishes plan sets, books and compilations of back issues of the Journal and the former Ships in Scale and Model Ship Builder magazines.
