Please Help Identify This Windlass

I recently inherited a Windlass winch. If someone could please help me identify the maker or model as is does not have any company markings except for casting numbers. Also what the value is.
Thanks very much.

Windlass: Could be a RC PLATH, or a knock off.

RC Plath Company - Metal Spinning Since 1926

My guess is that the motor is a 120/240 volt. It could be AC or DC depending on how ancient it is. Looks pretty. ____Grant.

My bet is RC Plath. Do a search and call them. They'll be able to look at the photos and tell you what it is. Great people to deal with.
