Ceremonial barge, circa 1780, starboard stern quarter
Scale: circa 1:16. Full hull plank on frame model of a ceremonial barge of the Shipwrights Company circa 1780, used by City of London Livery Companies. The model is decked and complete with a large ornately decorated cabin mounted on a traditional Thames 'wherry' hull. Forward of the cabin is where the 16 rowers would pull individually on oars, whilst the barge was steered by the bargemaster situated behind the cabin on a raised deck in the stern. The large carved animals on the cabin roof and human figures at the bow and stern, are a representative of Noah's Ark, the theme of which is represented in the Company's coat of arms.
