Day shapes are mast head signals visually indicating the status of a vessel to other vessels on navigable waters during daylight hours whether making-way, anchored, or aground.
A combination of different shapes would denote different meanings.
These hard to come by shapes are canvas stitched over metal shapes, that can fold flat when not in use. They have great old rope and metal clasps still attatched.
They would be stunning hung from the ceiling in a high corner, out on the deck,or incorporated with pendant lights to create a nautical feel.
