Model of the vessel 'Triton' (1697), warship, French, 42 guns
Scale 1:48. A contemporary full hull block model of the 'Triton' (1697), a small 42-gun French two-decker. The hull is carved from a solid(?) block of wood and painted white below the waterline with the upperworks finished in a light brown. The main wales are painted black with gunports above and on the upper deck, let into the hull, painted grey and edged in red. There is a single projecting stern gallery, and as is typical of this style of model, the carved decoration on the bow and around the stern and quarter galleries has been omitted. The flush decks are painted a creamy white colour with the bulwark screens and hancing pieces finished in a dark blue/black. The name "Troyton" is inscribed on the model, although there was never a ship of that name, but Tryton was a common spelling in English. The whole model is mounted on a pair of carved keel blocks together with two metal rods amidships, all of which are attached to a wooden rectangular and stained baseboard with a moulded edge.
