“Man at the Wheel” is an 8-foot-tall bronze statue of a fisherman overlooking Gloucester Harbor, America’s oldest seaport. The fisherman was modeled from a painting of Capt. Clayton Morrissey, who was a prominent Gloucester fisherman. The inscription that faces the harbor reads the Bible’s Psalm 107, They That Go Down To The Sea In Ships.” The Psalm continues, “These see the works of the Lord, and his wonders in the deep. For he commandeth, and raiseth the stormy wind, which lifteth up the waves thereof. They mount up to the heaven, they go down again to the depths: their soul is melted because of trouble.” The statue was designed by an English sculptor Leonard Craske and cast by the Gorham Company in Rhode Island in 1925 as part of an artistic competition to celebrate Gloucester’s 300th anniversary (1623-1923) memorializing thousands of fishermen lost at sea in the first three centuries of Gloucester’s history. The base of the memorial contains 47 items inside of it that represent Gloucester’s history and culture in 1923.16" and 18" sterling silver box chains available. Also available are sterling silver bangle bracelets that open for charms to be put on or sterling silver charm holders that hang from a black elastic cord -- see separate listings for these items.

This charm measures approximately 3/4". Because the charms are each hand crafted, their size may vary ever-so-slightly.

Each seal is available in silver (99.99 percent silver vs. 92.5 which is sterling) or bronze for the same price. Each seal comes with a story about its existence (as seen in first paragraph of description)


99% of my charms are available to ship immediately from stock on hand. Rarely, but every once in a while when a charm is in high demand, it might take up to 1 week to ship.
