Brass Pelican Chart Markers?
I''m searching for a gift for a friend who was in the US Navy. He has described a brass (bronze?) paperweight in the shape of a pelican that was used aboard ship to hold down charts on the chart table. The beak of the pelican was used as a pointer to mark positions.
Has anyone else heard of these markers? Do you know where I might obtain one?
Thanks in advance for your help.
is this one of them?
Nope, believe the brass pelicans he's talking about have their beaks pointed down, almost at desk level, to be used as a pointer on the chart. The one you've shown is looking up.
