How the obsession with maritime antiques and nautical collectables began........
Clipper Maritime Antiques was born from a seafaring family and a love for all things nautical.
My father was a Merchant Seaman and Chief Engineer aboard the famous Harrison line fleet of steamships, so I guess there was already saltwater in the blood. After learning to Scuba Dive in the late 80's, I became interested in shipwrecks and maritime history. I spent all my spare time researching, locating and diving Cornish shipwrecks along with this came an interest in maritime antiques, nautical brass and shipwreck artefacts.
