I'd be grateful if anyone could tell me if a clock and barometer from the 1913 built Lycaon has any value other than sentimental

Ship's name and dated, I would say they are worth a lot of money, more so if the instrument is the ship's chronometer.
Only a nautical antique clock and watch expert would be able to tell you exactly how much.
Any chance of a couple of pictures for the gallery?

Lycaon, built Hawthorn & Leslie N/Tyne 1913 survived both wars and Yokohama earthquake 1923, transferred to Glen Line as Gleniffer 1951 and broken up Faslane 1952.

Depending on Make and condition. Might be worth taking it to your local antique shop

Thanks for that.

The clock is from the Captain's Room and the barometer is from the Chart Room.

I'll take advice from the experts.

Thanks again

I sailed in the old Lycaon towards the end of 1945 (Captain Ellams). I would most certainly attach some value to such items. Tell me more!
