'Mnemosyne' (circa 1870)
Scale: 1:32. A contemporary full hull model of a sailing merchant brig named 'Mnemosyne' (circa 1870), mounted on its original wooden display crutches. The copper encased hull is complete with a female half bust figurehead on the bow, while on deck are various fittings including a large deckhouse, winches and windlasses, steering wheel, and skylights for the after cabin. The hull has been painted black above the waterline. The deck house roof, spars, and mast details have been painted white. The model has been fitted with a lead keel indicating that it was intended to be sailed. It also has a working compass mounted on the deck forward of the wheel. Some of the fittings such as the spars are over scaled.
