'Colussus'; warship; 74 guns
Scale: Unknown. A model of a Royal Naval warship, 'Colussus', made in plaster with wood, metal, paper, and cotton fittings which has been realistically painted. The model depicts the vessel at 13.40 on 21 October 1805 at the height of the Battle of Trafalgar and the ship shows damage sustained in the action. The ship is three masted and ship rigged on all three masts. All the sails show shot damage. A white ensign is flying from the peak of the gaff, a union flag is flying from a halliard, between the fore and main masts, and a pennant is flying from the top of the main mast. Dark grey smoke is billowing from two places on the deck. The hull is painted black with white stripes along the gun decks, white on the deck, and black on the deck fittings. On paper label '12'.
