This striking ornament features a component that would have been used within a Royal Navy aircraft's on board radar system.
Carefully mounted on a handcrafted wooden plinth, this is an unusual item. It would look great on a shelf or desk and be reminiscent of a key piece of tactical hardware.
The Thyratron is effectively a high capacity switch/rectifier, capable of outputs of 2 megawatts. This example would have been part of a radar system.
