Description
Schooner - two-master - ship model - Wood - Second half 20th century
Europe

Well-built wooden ship's model. The schooner is a gracefully-shaped sailing ship that sticks very deep under water. This allows the ships to sail against the wind without swords. In the construction of the first schooner, speed was preferred over cargo. The Dutch schooners were mainly built in Groningen. Around 1900 many schooners in Western Europe were used for coastal shipping. After 1920, this type of ship was decreasingly used by the emerging motorboat.

Size (approximately):
Length: 75 cm.
Height: 14.5 cm including base. 60 cm (incl stand)
width: 12 cm.

Note: because of the vulnerability, picking up the model is preferred, in Babyloniënbroek (near Gorinchem).
When shipped, the seller is NOT liable for damage to the ship's model during transport (stand and flags will be packed loosely).
