HMS 'San Fiorenzo' (1850)
Scale: 1:48. A contemporary half block model of HMS 'San Fiorenzo' (circa 1850), a 4th rate 50-gun frigate. The hull is carved form a solid block of wood (?) and is painted a metallic bronze colour below the waterline with the topsides above painted black, with the main gundeck highlighted by a creamy white horizontal band. The gunports are painted black and red, let into the hull and fitted with canon(some missing) in the firing position. Above the main gundeck are three sets of channels(one missing) with the gunports on the forecastle and quarterdeck let in and rigged with canon. The bow is fitted with head rails just aft of a plain beakhead and a single cathead. There were three stump masts on the raised quarter and forcastle decks but are now missing. At the stern are the rounded galleries, below which is a rudder fitted to the sternpost. The whole model is mounted on a rectangular stained wooden backboard with a paper label on which is inscribed "San Fiorenzo. 50 Guns".
