White metal. A model of an Aylen’s Admiralty Pattern anchor with circular stock, fitted with metal pins allowing it to be un-shipped from the shank and stowed flat.  Commander John Alleyn’s anchor was used by the Royal Navy between circa 1850 and 1885. It underwent rigorous testing after rival designs were exhibited at the Great Exhibition of 1851. Commander Aylen, R.N., was the Queen’s Harbour Master at Devonport from 1861.
