Contemporary full hull model of the 'Mordaunt'
Scale: 1:48. A contemporary full hull model of the 'Mordaunt', a 40-50-gun two-decker ship (circa 1681), built plank on frame in the Navy Board style. The model is partially decked and equipped including a fully rigged capstan in the waist and ornate belfry on the forecastle.
This is a very rare example whereby the identification of this model was confirmed by comparing its dimensions with the known measurements of the ship and by the coat of arms of the Mordaunt family at the break of the poop deck. The unique layout and style of decoration has also been identified in contemporary drawings by the Dutch marine artist, William van de Velde, the Elder (see PAI7281).
Built in the Royal Dockyard at Deptford, the 'Mordaunt' had a gun deck length of 122 feet by 32 feet in the beam and a tonnage of 567 burden. Originally built for Lord Mordaunt, afterwards the Earl of Peterborough, the 'Mordaunt' was bought into the Royal Navy in 1683 and eventually wrecked in 1693 in the West Indies after a fairly uneventful career.
