May not be for the bilges Mr.D - may not even be a valve of the ball variety - could be any manner of seacock? But do agree the narrow end(top?) looks very fancy (would like to say it's a design approach to keeping the amount of raw material used in casting to a minimum, like on a steel ibeam - but that would just be bulls**ting!)

Component part of a ships steam whistle/fog horn?

May not be off the Teddington? Could be off one of these:

The arrangement of those lugs seems quite telling . . . why are they not equidistant?

I'm pretty sure that diving suit belongs to Cthulhu.

Hope the previous owner wasn't extracted through the fitting - might explain its conical shape though }Smile
