The Shipwreck

Early 20th Century Scratch Built Galleon Ship Model
An extraordinary Early 20th Century example of a hand-crafted scratch-built galleon ship model, which we have entitled the “The shipwreck”. A hand carved wooden hull supports a numerous copper sails and ship accessories. This is an amazing object and highly decorative, placed on a bespoke metal stand that allows this model to stand perfectly for display purposes. The naturally weathered hull and Verdigris across all metal sections is what makes this item so special. A real statement piece displayed in the right space.
Size in inches: H 40” x W 40” x D 15”
Origin: English
Period: Early 20th Century
Material: Wood and Copper
Condition: This item is completely solid in structure and form, due to its age this model shows obvious wear and tear details in the photos provided, with a naturally weathered ship hull and Verdigris across all its metal sections, with minor losses to detail but completely firm and stable in form. Its exceedingly difficult to photograph all the areas of this piece therefore we strongly suggest reviewing all the photos provided as part of this advert and propose questions where sections are unclear to avoid disappointment.
