Antique Scotish Clipper Ship Model ADINO

 

WITHDRAWN FROM SALE!

ANTIQUE SCOTTISH CLIPPER SHIP MODEL
ADINO of ARBROATH 

 

Portside view of the Clipper Ship Adino model image
 

 Handcrafted Model of the Clipper Adino

 

Presented is a carefully handcrafted full rigged model of the Scottish Clipper ADINO with a varnished Mahogany hull, deck and spars. This three masted full rigged ship was  made by a model maker using the plank on frame method of construction. Each handmade  plank is fitted to the curves of the hull and held in place by a small brass nail. A tedious and time consuming task. At the bow stands a graceful figurehead of a woman dressed in a flowing gown painted in gold. The ship's name is painted on both bows and the stern carries the name and home port. Being a full rigged ship, the rigging is a complex array of running and standing rigging which took many hours to complete. From the large size windlass on the foredeck to the steering station aft, the model maker paid attention to detail such as the pin rails at the base of each mast. The hull rests on a contemporary wood stand which is a recent replacement. The model maker carefully followed what is known about a clipper ship's design making a beautiful display.

THE SHIP ADINO:  Built in Arbroath, launched June 1840; material pitch-pine,
(on Lloyds register (A1 classified) until 1855 or so; when she may have been sold abroad, or possibly wrecked, or scrapped)

Port of Registry: Dundee, then London
GRT= 219/228 tons

Owned by:
Leslie & Co (Original)
Davies & Co Later
Captains:
J Baxter, H Davies

Trading routes: UK - Indian Ocean area eg. Mauritious;visiting many UK ports (eg. Bristol, London)

"Regarding the model itself, it would appear to be a good example of a general purpose trader, often with an originating owner-operator. Hence it is likely that the model would have been constructed for one of the owner-Masters - but not necessarily in Arbroath!" The above Information furnished by William Cumming, British marine historian.

PROVENANCE: Purchased in England around 1985 from a tony London antiques dealer by the patriarch of a distinguished American family listed in Forbes 400. Sent to the U.S. where it was on display in a private dinner club for many years. Now new to the market for the first time in 30 years.

DIMENSIONS of MODEL: LOA 36" L x 6" W x  24" H         Weight 10 pounds estimated

Looking aft from the bow the length of the ship image

 

Behind the bowsprit and dolphin striker, the stem has an ornately carved queenly figurehead. On deck aft of the foredeck and bowsprit is the foremast, and then a forward hatch midships with the ship's boat above. Then a straight run to the quarter deck where the mizzen mast stands, and last aft the steering station which is at the very stern.

ARBROATH: or Aberbrothock /?r'bro?θ/ (Scottish Gaelic: Obar Bhrothaig, is a former royal burgh and the largest town in the council area of Angus in Scotland, and has a population of 23,902. It lies on the North Sea coast, around 16 miles (25.7 km) ENE of Dundee and 45 miles (72.4 km) SSW of Aberdeen.

While there is evidence for settlement of the area now occupied by the town that dates back to the Iron Age, Arbroath's history as a town begins in the High Middle Ages with the founding of Arbroath Abbey in 1178. Arbroath grew considerably during the Industrial Revolution owing to the expansion of firstly the flax and secondly the jute industries and the engineering sector. A new harbour was built in 1839 and by the 20th century, Arbroath had become one of the larger fishing ports in Scotland.

The town is notable as the home of the Declaration of Arbroath, as well as the Arbroath Smokie.[4] and its football team Arbroath FC holding the world record for highest number of goals in professional football match 36-0 against Aberdeen Bon Accord in the Scottish Cup in 1885.

CONDITION: The model is complete in all respects and has all its original finish remaining. The deck has been dusty and cleaned from time to  time, but has a light white mist of age.  The rigging is mostly taught and shows some repairs. All the gear and fittings are in place and nothing is broken or missing, put the pin rail surrounding the main mast is warped on the starboard side.. The mast, spars, boom and rigging are all correctly fitted. Considering its age, the model's condition is excellent. The overall appearance of the model is quite remarkable and impressive.
