After my last post about my new to me vintage ship captain lamp, I got to thinking…
Exactly how many of these guys are living in our home?
Well I’m here today to inventory them and introduce you to all of the ship captains/fishermen and their kin! Without further adieu, my latest collection…
Adjacent to the wall with the lamp is the art deco mantel which is currently home to twin ship captains.
They’re pretty cute and functional bookends.
You may remember Old Man Ryan, the vintage needlepoint on the left. I introduced him a few months ago.
He has since found a wife and I must say she’s a real looker. Another vintage needlepoint to his right.
The little sailor paint by number boy finally found a home. He seemed to round out the family nicely. Let’s call him Wilson.
I told you I have a thing for the peg leg captains. I like them better than the Gorton’s Fishermen types.
We picked up this little figurine in Brimfield. He’s now perched on a shelf in our bedroom.
With that said, I do have a Gorton’s Fishermen captain. He is a painting that is now hanging above our bar area. I will have to take an updated picture of that soon. This photo is from when we first got him last summer. I love the colors of that ocean.
The peg leg lamp is definitely my current favorite though. While all of the captains/fishermen have their own style, I think his is the best. I love how the yellow mock turtle neck slim his figure down! Ha!
In your opinion, how many is too many in this sort of collection? I think I’m at capacity.
So tell me, what (or who) are you collecting these days?
