This uniquely presented full hull model mounted on delicate pedestals, has a full sail configuration which emphasizes this sleek 97’ Baltimore clipper’s ability to achieve great speed. The model is fitted with six 12-pounder guns and all other appropriate deck gear per this 1812 era. The sails are set up on a port tack and include topsails. The model is constructed of solid wood, which has then been planked-over, and includes laid decking, with all appropriate armament, deck furniture, gear, and fittings. The model is authentically painted per late early 19th century naval practice with a black topside and copper sheathed bottom. Rigging is of painted twisted copper wire, sails are of treated and painted tissue, with a wooden sculpted sea being hand-carved and painted with artists oils. The case is constructed of mahogany veneer with matching trim on the cover, and brass engraved plaques.
