Kenrick Claflin founded the company in 1956. 56 years later, son James Claflin is still providing service his father would be proud of, and that his clients can rely on.


We have the largest inventory of United States Lighthouse Service (USLHS), Light House Establishment (USLHE), Life-Saving Service (USLSS), Revenue Cutter Service (USRCS), Shipwrecks and early Coast Guard (USCG), and works by Edward Rowe Snow. If you are looking for something particular, let us know and we will find it!


Owner James Claflin writes a blog to keep nautical enthusiasts up to date on the nautical antiques, lighthouse history, coastal news, and more!
