Cargo vessel; Kiangsu junk

It is rigged with five masts with fully battened sails (some damaged), with a carved wooden decoration at the head to carry a flag. The hull is decorated along the waterline area with blue, yellow, red and green horizontal stripes along the wale. The bulwark capping is also painted yellow. Together with a carved wooden cradle and fittings, the model is packed in an original wooden box, on which are various written and stencilled inscriptions.
