Ships Glass Bottle - DG15231

There are no messages in our ships bottles, these days we are putting LED lights in them instead. Great sellers alongside our LED glass floats and these can be purchased in one of four colours.

Terebra Shell Decorative Shell Ball - DGL4210

These are stunning and comprise of at least 20 terebra seashells with complimenting nassa type seashells mixed in for effect. The overall colour is a blend of caramel and these could make a centre piece in a seashell collection. The terebra shell, commonly called a screw shell,  are often used for shell crafting and are popular with designers. These measure 5 inches in diameter – approx. 12.5 cms. Occasionally some of the terebras will have a blunt end but not visible enough to affect their super look.

£5.95 each

 

 

Metal Swordfish Plaque Wall Art - DG17431

Dappled sunlight in the background to show how our metal swordfish plaque glimmers on the wall. Measures 31 cms in length and a hook already built in to the back.  These are really for indoor use but will last a while outside. We often get asked if our items are suitable for the exterior and mainly they are not, but it's always possible to put a weathershield on to the item for it to last a little longer in the garden. The background paint is Sandtex and called - Mid Stone - we are putting it everywhere.

£9.95 each

Our subtsantial nautical wooden hooks measuring approximately 20 cms in length and 9 cms wide.  We thought of selling them individually but had a brainwave and are offering all four for £5.95. Limited stock as you are getting all 4 for the price of 1 – confusing?

£5.95 each

 

 

Porcelain Trinket Box with Silver Anchor - DGS6258

Porcelain trinket box made suitably nautical by the inclusion of a silver anchor to lift the lid. The picture was taken on a stormy afternoon on Poole Quay and it was quite a challenge to get the picture illustrating the lid partly off the main body, in fact – it’s now somewhere in the depths of the harbour now. Measuring 8 cms in diameter and 9 cms to the top of the anchor.

£5.95 each

 

 

Large Decorated Lighthouse in Wood - DGL8751

Wooden large lighthouse with beach themed decorations including wooden floats. Measures 37 cms in height and base diameter approximately 12 cms. We have introduced a few lighthouses with LED lights run on batteries, however this one is non lighting up and one of our best sellers in the shop. Our shop on Poole Quay is open the best part of 330 days a year – always worth phoning us first if you are making a long journey as we are prone to opening a few hours later if the weather is particularly severe and we fancy a lie in.

£16.95 each

£22.50 each

 

 

Mackerel Nut Mango Wood Bowl - DGS7281

Decal enamelled mango mackerel nut bowl measuring 10 cms wide and 7 cms high, weighing 140 grammes. Beautiful mango wood is best rubbed with olive or sunflower oil to maintain its integrity.

Shimmering fish wall art measuring 60 cms in width, 38 cms in height and 2 cms in depth. Very easy to hang as they have brackets on the back and need no more than a small tack – you know, the ones that are smaller than nails that we all frequently miss when sorting out wall décor.

£59 each

 

 

Silver Grey Whale Wall Art to the Left - DGS7437

Silver grey wall art – it’s a winner, especially to the left for some reason. Actually we also have them doing a flip to the right and we can send you one of those instead but it might confuse things and your chances of getting the correct alternative would be significantly reduced. It may involve a phone call to the office, potentially an expletive over the phone and then the correct one arriving a couple of days later. If this is an option for you please order the one above and leave a note on your order that you really want one emerging from the sea with movement to the right – we will see what we can do. The wife just proof read this and she’s confused.

51cms x 20cms x 2 cms

£22.50 each

Large Driftwood Boat on Stand - DGL6607

Strangely enough it’s made of driftwood.

£22.50 each

 

 

Pastel Seaside Cottage with Tea Light - DGL5609

Recommended nautical quayside ceramics and useful too as they can take a tea light for the new romantics out there. Unfortunately it’s against our religion to supply these but with the wooden and metal handle and the pastel ceramic cottage you’re going to look dashing walking out in to the garden or on to the balcony as the sun sets on those memorable Summer nights. Measures 26 cms in height, 17 cms in width and 10 cms wide.

£19.95 each

 

 

Giant Driftwood Boat - DGL6612

We have sourced a quite unique driftwood boat which has been received very well in exchange for under £30.

£29.95 each

 

 

Driftwood Seahorse on Base - DGL6611

We are having a seahorse kind of season and this driftwood seahorse hasn’t seen the front door of a factory – we like to use the word “artisan” as a percentage of our customers might not know what this means and rightfully but for the wrong reason assume it is superior. So long as we get there in the end and these beautiful items are carefully put together and carved in family homes owned by artisans in remote parts of Bali. Measures 40 cms in height, 15 cms wide and 6 cms deep.

£19.95 each

Box framed nauticals art work in wood are a new look and one that is catching the eye of our repeat customers.

£19.95 each

 

 

Resin Seahorse on Pebble - DGL7629

£6.95 each

Measures 32 cms in height, 24 cms in width and 5 cms deep. We trade online but also have a lovely little shop on Poole Quay where many of our internet buyers end up once in a while. Pay us a visit and we might do a deal with you on one of our Marshfield Ice Creams!


£13.95 each

 

 

Lifering Clock in Wood - DGL8826

It’s 21 cms and not 41 cms. This does mean that it is smaller than the majority of our clocks and if you are looking for a larger clock please look at some of our others on this site. Clocks do occasionally find their way back to us in good time because they are indeed smaller than expected so this simple description should make you, the buyer, aware that it is 21 cms and not 41 cms. This is also not inches and is centimetres so this might be worth considering before adding this item to the shopping cart. The rope at the top is on this occasion not part of the diameter of the clock but for hanging to the nail or tack that you will have to whack in to the wall to create a sturdy lifetime fixing. We do love these 21 cms in diameter clocks. And once again, a wooden Welcome Aboard Clock measuring 21 cms in diameter and 4 cms in depth. Takes an AA battery to further improve your enjoyment of this 21 cms diameter clock (in a lifering). The lifering is not suitable for lifesaving occurences.

£17.95 each

 

 

Kimmeridge Yacht in Wood - DGL8827

Kimmeridge is a very small village on the coast of Dorset. We have never seen a yacht there, anywhere near there or actually anywhere along the Dorset Coast looking like this one and for this and no other reason we have decided to bestow the name “Kimmeridge” on this beautiful yacht as it’s one of our favourite and best selling yachts. Look at those beautiful colours! Measures 42 cms in height, 24 cms in length and 5 cms deep.

£9.95 each

 

 

Large Blue and Mainly White Boat Shelves - DGL8828

Measures 134 cms in height, 56 cms in width and a depth of 20 cms – these are all maximum sizings. In this size apart from the base there will be 2 shelves. We don’t think these will ever go out of style on the basis that we have been selling them successfully for nearly 15 years.

£149 each

 

 

Largest Blue/White Boat Shelves 163 cms - DGL8829

We have always done well with our boat bookcases, which are rarely used for books but as a nautical decoration. Our rustic Balinese type boats on show on this page have always been our best sellers but we have added these with three shelves and perhaps a “cleaner” or should we say “straighter” look. They do have quite a different feel to our others and as a new item we expect these to sell very well. Largest boat shelves in this style and measuring 163 cms in height, 68 cms in width and 23 cms in depth.

£195 each

£5.95 each

 

 

Nautical Small Decorative Chair - DGL6390

Measures 40 cms in height by 25 cms in depth and width. More for decorative purposes of the nautical style than for sitting on – due to its’ size perhaps more than most will realise this but worth mentioning. Sea styled colurs and very beachy. Maybe a good idea to purchase one of our stuffed puffer fish for the seat?

£29.95 each

 

 

Anchor Cushion - DGL6563

Delightful anchor design cushion for your boat or beach hut.

Measuring 35 cms by 35 cms.

Rustic Bridport Trawler in Blues - DGL6581a

Our preferred trawler in this size. Many of you may have heard of the infamous Brixham trawleres but we’re in Dorset so ours sound similar. It’s in the blues and measures 16 cms by 14 cms by 2 cms. These are hand painted so please look out for any minor blemishes in the paintwork which will make your trawler of the Bridport variety completely unique... under a tenner.

£9.95 each

 

 

Wooden Classic J Class Yacht - DGL6589

Our preferred boat in this size category and measures 68 cms in height, 52 cms in length and 8 cms deep, perfect for window sills, perhaps perfect for mantle pieces too. Our favourite in this size and showing J Class credentials with a blue and white hull and sleek clean white sails. The hull is already assembled and on dispatch we place the sails on the top of the hull so they require fixing. This should only take about 15 minutes to assemble with a coffee break. We will always price match if you have found a boat of the same quality at the same price.


£59 each

 

 

Rustic Greek Sailing Yacht - DGL6587

Our preferred boat in this price category and we call this our Greek yacht as I saw one quite similar to this off the coast of Corfu about 35 years ago. Interesting sail configuration and off white hull with a red line. Unfortunately we couldn't source a sailor having a swig of ouzo from the stern – that’s how I remembered it! Measures 42 cms in height, 30 cms in width and 6 cms deep.


£25 each

 

 

Atlantic Classic Yacht - DGL6588

Highly recommended. A beautifully styled model yacht which comes with the hull and base fixed and ready – you merely have to set up the sails.

Carved Smaller Wooden Seahorse - DGL7501xs

These hand carved wooden white seahorses have sold consistently for us for over 15 years now and remain very popular, especially the largest one. What we love about these is that they are not made in factories but by artisans in small workshops in Bali which are usually attached to their homesteads. It would be our wish to source all our merchandise this way and this is something we will work towards as we move, no doubt swiftly, in to the 2020s. Measures 30 cms in height.

£12.95 each

 

 

Titanic Clock - DGL7778

Brittany Tug Boat - DGS7331

Our tug boat isn’t really from Brittany and we mention this as a disclaimer as we wouldn’t want any of our lovely customers to take a ferry to this beautiful part of the world expecting a harbour full of them. You can see them in our shop in Poole though – unless of course we have run out of stock. On the shelf they measure 30 cms in length and 22cms in height so big enough not to have to ask the sales assistant where they are. Pick up a stick of rock too or if buying online mention a stick of rock and I’m sure we can add a stick with Poole written through – for customers outside the UK this is just not particularly funny British seaside humour.

£24.95 each

 

Sandpiper Bird - DGS7359

Made of wood, 12 cms high and 10 cms wide. Another interesting bird and an unusual one for our ever growing collection of mainly seabirds. It’s important that our wading seabirds have different length bills as it cuts out the competitipon for food. Sandpipers are found on most of the world’s land surfaces except our driest deserts and the Antartica. Perhaps that’s why we don’t get many orders from Antartica and the Sahara. These are often see Wintering along the South Coast of England but can be seen all over the UK.

Dunlin Bird - DGS7360

A dunlin is a small wader which travels vast distances – they breed in the Arctic but do winter in Poole Harbour, those seeking more sun continue on to Spain. “Dun” is an old English name for “brown”. Rather a nice model standing 17 cms in height and widest is 12 cms.

An interesting idea, our fish plates in four dishes can measure 31 cms by 11 cms but you could always stretch them out a little.

We sell these by weight but within 100 grammes you should receive in fact about 30 at the size specified above. Some will be parts of the teeth but 30 should be perfect. All these shark teeth are fossils so would have come from sharks swimming and roaming the seas millions of years ago. These are produced as a by product of mining so they do not relate to sharks currently swimming the waters. Great for educational purposes, craft work with seashells and more.

£5.95 for 100 grammes

 

 

 

Nautical Roped Knot Lamp - DGKNOTLP

Nautically themed rope lamp made of sturdy thick hemp rope. Comes with linen style fabric shade. All fittings are for the UK which differ from Europe and the USA. We have always sold the nautical rope knots separately but what a good idea to combine with a lamp shade.

The nautical rope knot with shade measures 49 cms in height. The depth and width with the shade both measure 30 cms. The actual rope knot measures 19 cms in height and 16 cms in width. This includes the wooden base.

Great inexpensive decor for nautical bedrooms, living rooms, in fact Nigel from the Portsmouth Hoy has just walked in to the shop and asked for two for the pub so let's add “great nautical decor” for restaurants and pubs. Might do a deal with him to include one of their marvellous Sunday lunches.

We are selling a few of our classic food items but only if they come in a reusable tin and something we think those nautically minded might enjoy as an accompaniment on their or someonelse’s boat.  Moores Dorset Knob Biscuits are usually accompanied with a wry smile, laughter or a blush when purchasing in our shop. They do sell very well.  They do what is says on the tin — “Superior double baked savoury biscuits, made to the original Moores family recipe in the heart of Dorset and enjoyed throughout the world”. Moores have been established since 1880, that’s more than a hundred years longer than us but on to the biscuits – originally made from dough left over from a mornings bread production – most buyers now enjoy these with some mature cheese and back in the day they were eaten with sugar and hot tea poured on to them. 400 grammes in weight and the average weight of each knob is 10 grammes. That’s the biscuits done but what a superb tin!!! Something to keep in the kitchen for many years to come. Approx 20 cms high and 15 cms wide/deep.

Our Smallest Beach Mix - DGSMIX

 


We recently had a lovely lady visit our shop and kindly complain that we didn’t have really really tiny seashells. After making all the excuses that immediately came to mind I did realise that over the years we have collected all sorts and types of tiny seashells which of course are perfect for craftwork. We have put in a couple of 5p pieces which I retrieved from my wife's purse to show just how small these are. To keep interesting we mix in a few slightly larger seashells but nearly all of these will be half a centimetre mixing up to a scattering of 2 cms seashells. Our mix is blended with interesting shells and if you go for a kilo these are being sold at the very best price. 

200 grammes at £2.95
500 grammes at £4.95
1 kg at £9.95

£29

Studland Beach Hut

 

For identification purposes only  we have named this lovely beach hut ornament ( which doubles up as a money box ) the Studland beach hut although it has absolutely nothing to do with Studland, Dorset or anywhere else along our beautiful coast.  You would have to spend a long time searching for a beach hut in Studland matching this and your search will probably end up in our shop several miles to the east which opens seven days through the season from 10am to sometimes as late as 10pm depending how I'm getting on with the wife. Measurements .16 cms in height, 10 cms deep and 12 cms wide.  I suppose we can still call this shabby chic which remains a defining term for something that has been painted perhaps in the dark. This does have lovely shades of white blue and grey and a ships wheel on the front. Like all our merchandise this comes highly recommended.

£7.95 each

 

 

Sandbanks Beach Hut - DGN55520

 

Named after the pretty colours you don't see on the beach huts down at Sandbanks and poignantly doubles up as a money box, although these really look best as wooden ornaments. I'm not sure why we have reduced these as they're well worth recommended retail price but the property down there is currently having a bit of a wobble so we hjave passed the discount on.  16 cms high, 12 cms wide and 10 cms deep.  Great colours. pinks. blues  and whites with some sustainable seashell additions and an anchor.

£7.95 each

Clyde Puffer Boat - DGN605

Oh yes, the Clyde Puffer and these  were mainly built on the Clyde for supply runs around the west coast and Hebrides Islands. These stumpy boats were made up until the late 1930s although your model is likely to be made in China  within the last several months! They were fairly flat bottomed  puffers enabling them not to have to rely so much on piers.  One for the window sill (especially if you are in beautiful Scotland).  20 cms in length.

£29

 

Brass and Copper Diving Helmet - DG7123

Brass and Copper Diving helmet. 26 cms top to bottom.  This is a replica and not for trying to see if it works when fun is being had at a beach party. Like the originals this is made from solid brass and copper. It wouldn’t be too tricky to illuminate these and make a “centre feature”.
