'Boyne', bow, dead ahead
Scale: 1:48. A contemporary skeleton model of the 'Boyne' (1692), an 80-gun two-decker ship of the line, built in the Navy Board style. The model is decked and partially planked and is complete with a number of fittings. A scroll at the break of the poop gives the ship's name and date, the name of the builder, Harding, and place of building: 'YE BOYNE Bt [built] BY MR HARDING DEP [Deptford] SA'. The measurements also agree with the actual ship. This is a particularly fine example of 17th century modelmaking, illustrating the design and ornate decoration of the ships of this period. The model is thought to be unique in that it bears its name in the scroll carved at the break of the poop deck. The richly carved stern decoration is complete with the original and almost circular stern lanterns, while the intertwined monograms of William and Mary appear on the quarter galleries.
