This Great Model Has Been Sold.
Thank you!

LARGE AMERICAN VINTAGE BRIG RIGGED SHIP IN BOTTLE

Port side of vintage American brig rigged ship model image
starboard side of vintage American brig rigged model image

Signed & Dated, High Quality! 

This vintage model of a 19th Century brig rigged sailing vessel flying the American flag is housed in a gallon jug. It is patterned after the type of trading vessel that plied the world's oceans. The studding sails add a touch of authenticity rarely, if ever, seen on a ship in a bottle model.

SPECIFICATIONS: Length Overall  13 3/4"       Model 6" L x 4 1/2" H x 3/4" W                Bottle 12" x 6 1/4"     Stand 12" x 5" x 2 1/2" x 3/4"      Weight 3 Lbs.  12 oz.                   ;    Base Signed R. Rowley, Seattle, May 1986

 

Presented is a miniature replica of a black hulled two masted sailing vessel with four square sails on the foremast and fore and aft rig on the mizzen. From her bow sprit aft she flys a flying jib, followed by a jib and then a forestaysail. The square sails on the foremast from the deck up, are foresail, gallant, top gallant and royal. Between the masts are staysails named for the square sail such as the royal staysail, top gallant staysail, etc. In addition to the high quality build, what makes this model stand apart from others of this genre are the boomed extensions to the yards which carry the studding sails. This feature is in addition to the attention to detail paid to the decks, cleats, blocks, houses, separate rudder, realistic sails, intricate running and standing rigging, and finish.

The gallon jug is mounted on an equally detailed and complex stand which is trimmed in fancy rope work consisting of complex Turks heads and flemishing trim, all with a varnish coating which is fitting of such a magnificent model.

You likely will not find another one of a kind model with this degree of authenticity and quality.

CONSTRUCTION TECHNIQUE: The most common method is using a 'flat pack' approach which incorporates pivoting masts with their rigging which are hinged and lay flat. The masts are constructed in several sections and connected to the hull via small wooden hinges at their base. The yards were turned to be parallel with the masts. This allowed them to rotate through 90 degrees so that they lay in line with the masts along the centerline of the hull. The rigging was then affixed or allowed to pass through small holes drilled in the spars and hull was hinged. The stand was likely set in place first and then the rest placed on top of it. This method enabled the model to be constructed in a collapsed - almost flat - state, so it could pass through the narrow neck of the bottle stern first. The whole rig was erected by pulling the rigging through a series of guide holes, either down through the hull towards the bow or through and under the bowsprit. Finally, the excess rigging was cut off at the bowsprit and trimmed as required. This model features rarely seen studding sails which are an extension on both sides of the yards because of its added complexity.

COMPARABLES: Don't be lured by the cheap machine made models that are made by the thousands in China and Viet Nam factories that are avaiabe on the internet for as little as $24.95. A model such as this one of a kind work of art takes a minimum of 50 hours to complete, and is priced for the discriminating buyer who can appreciate its value.
