European coastal towns and islands supplied the bulk of sailors over the years. Gone for months or even years, their return was a joyful and festive occasion for family and friends. To announce a safe homecoming, a small iron or brass anchor was displayed next to the family cottage entrance. The local priest or pastor often blessed these little anchors during church service before the sailor left for a new and uncertain voyage.
This anchor paperweight, now used as decorative display, pays homage to the sweet nautical tradition in an iteration that is fit for modern homes. Add a touch of history to your desk or book cases.
Designed in the late 1960’s for Nantucket Looms, our classic boatneck sweater never goes out of style. Originally designed to be worn without a shirt underneath, the boatneck can be worn in a more fitted fashion or select the next size up for a looser fit. The saddle stitch shoulders and high boatneck collar are distinctive to this sweater. Unisex sizing.
