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.
