stbryson Posted August 16, 2021 Share #1 Posted August 16, 2021 Hello, I think this was called a "bar anchor". If I remember correctly (no guarantee), the drinker had a chain attached from a finger to the anchor, and the anchor was on the floor or on the table. One looks to be a generic post-WWII item, and the other is named to a USS Blackhawk sailor. I forgot to include a scale in the photos. The "SHANGHAI CHINA 1948" one is about 3 1/2" tall, with the flutes being about 2 1/2" tall. The "W W HAMILTON U.S.S. BLACKHAWK ASIATIC FLEET-CHEFOO-CHINA-1939" is about 4 1/2" tall, with the flutes being about 3" tall. They could also just be a generic sailor souvenir. Take care, Steve Bryson Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
