80-gun two decker 'Le Mars'
Scale: unknown. A contemporary full hull model, rigged and complete with numerous fittings including a full set of boats; the whole of which is mounted on wooden baseboard. This model was probably named after the 'Mars' of Trafalgar fame although typically, it includes fittings of both English and French design. Apart from the rich and ornately carved wooden decoration on the topsides, the lower wooden hull is covered with copper to give the impression of copper sheathing which was used to prevent damage from both the marine boring worm 'Teredo Navalis' and weed growth.
