Large Folding Stock Anchor

  • Price: $8,200 USD
  • 6′ across the flukes, shank is 9′ long
  • Weight approx. 1,600 lbs
  • Location: Maryland
  • This is a large folding stock anchor. It was pulled up by a shrimp boat near the approach to Blackbeard’s creek.It’s big, beautiful and makes quite a statement. It’s been out of the water for 20 years and is very solid.

    You probably didn’t notice, but one side of the stock didn’t survive and was replaced with a length of pipe long ago. It matches nicely. The anchor displays very well with some crustacean and a length of original chain still attached.

    It’s a head turner and would attract attention in front of your bar restaurant, or private collection.

    It dates from 1850 to 1880.
