N.S. Ship’s Barrel Ramp

Ref: 6408

SOLD

A scarce 19th century paint-decorated ship's barrel ramp found in Yarmouth, Nova Scotia. This was used to roll barrels or other cargo from wharf to boat as well as from an upper ship's deck to a lower one. The iron center supports are intentionally bowed to accommodate a barrel's shape. Nice original paint decoration on the sides and features its original iron hooks on one end. Have not seen another in 20 years. 

Dimensions: 79"x13"
