Model of a warship (1800); French; Frigate; 44-46 guns
Scale: 1:120. A contemporary full hull model of a French 44-46 gun frigate (1800) fully rigged and mounted on its original wooden oval shaped baseboard. This is a very high quality, accurate and well made model of a typical frigate of this period. It is complete with a whole range of fixtures and fittings including brass cannons, a full set of anchors and handling gear, a double wheel and a capstan with the bars rigged and made from bone. The hull is a wonderful example of craftsmanship with the finely laid planks, either on a wooden core or possibly frames, still as tight as the day they were applied. The carved decoration at bow and stern is also of the highest quality and is probably in boxwood. The rigging is also very detailed and in largely original condition, complete with an original silk tricolor flying from the peak of the gaff on the mizzen.
