Bermuda Sloop Large Antique Finish Model Sail Boat with Exquisite Design
There are two model pond yacht worlds out there. The small ones used by boys and girls, charming, nostalgic by now, colorful. Then there are the five to eight footers. High tech. For the men of Model Racing Clubs. Marblehead, Greenwich, Haarlem, Fontainebleau... they love this model. Reproduced from a 1930s original, down to the smallest detail. Handmade bronze fittings, incredible deck details, magnificent rig. Lightly distressed, French finish hull with cotton sails and lines.
The Age of Sail made exploration possible. It opened the world to trade and cultural exchange. Models were made as votives for the port chapel or as shipyard models to impress the Admiralty Lords. Or possibly just as an exquisite creation by a gifted model maker for a friend or patron. Like dollhouses mesmerize children, our wonderful collection of sailing ships and runabouts continue to fascinate and intrigue.
