BONE "DIEPPE IVORY" SHIP MODEL

 
 

 
Presented is a model of an 18th Century sailing vessel made entirely from bone, sometimes known as "Dieppe Ivory" in the style of the French Prisoners in British prisons such as Dartmoor, during the War of 1812.
 
The ship's lines are very similar to the HMS Bounty except that the model doesn't have the afterside captain's stern castle ports. The model follows the original method of construction, but in this case, individual bone strakes are used to plank the hull and deck just as the real ships were built. It  comes complete with a full set of stitched sails and even a pulling boat on her foredeck. She is armed with four small cannons. This is a handsome testament to the model maker's work of art.

The gear and fittings are true to the original ship's design and  include a working rudder, boom jaws, grating, dead eyes and all the little details that make for a museum quality recreation. The model mounts by two  finials to a bone  stand. It authentically replicates ships of the 18th Century. The planks or strakes, are secured using bone ivory pegs just as in the real craft. Every part and piece of gear is hand made from bone ivory, This includes bone ivory used for hull, masts, tiller, gaff and spar, cannons, and deck houses. Rigging is flax and cotton with stitched panels. The stitched sails are laced to the gaff and boom. Many hundreds, maybe thousands of hours, went into the making of this authentically crafted model which is complete in every respect.
There were some shipping damages to the bowsprit and top foremast of the model which have been repaired.
 
DIMENSIONS  26' L x 21" H x 4 1/2" W                          WEIGHT:  5 3/4 lbs
 
Made to sell for $4500.00.

BRIEF HISTORY OF HMS BOUNTY: A coal carrying merchant ship operating on the coast of England, named the Bethia, was purchased by the Admiralty, renamed the Bounty, and re-commissioned in 1787 for a special mission. She was to sail halfway around the world to Tahiti, collect sapling breadfruit trees and transport them to the West Indies. Owners of the burgeoning British plantations there needed a cheap source of food for the workers. 

To lead the mission, the Admiralty picked 33-year-old Lt. William Bligh, who had been the sailing master on the HMS Resolution, on Capt. Cook's last voyage of discovery. Though portrayed as an abusive tyrant by legend, Bligh may be one of the greatest seamen who ever lived. 

After trying for 30 days to make it westward around Cape Horn, as he had been ordered, Bligh turned about and headed East; around the Cape of Good Hope, across the whole width of the Indian Ocean, then Northeast into the Pacific, arriving in Tahiti after a l0 month voyage. Bligh and the crew set about collecting the more than 1000 breadfruit plants they were to take to the Caribbean. They spent five months in Tahiti, during which time Bligh allowed a number of the crew to live ashore, to care for the potted breadfruit plants. Without the discipline and rigid schedule of the sea, the men went native. Three crewmen deserted, hoping to spend their days in this tropical paradise; but were recaptured by Bligh and flogged. 

Three weeks out of Tahiti, enroute to the West Indies with the breadfruit plants, Master's Mate (Acting Lieutenant) Fletcher Christian, angered and humiliated over the continual abuse from Capt. Bligh took control of the ship by force. Of the 44 men on board, 31 sided with Bligh. Of the 31, 18 went over the side to be set adrift in the Bounty's launch with Bligh. The mutineers, numbering about half of the remaining 25 crewmen, but in command of the Bounty having secured all the firearms aboard, sailed the ship to the island of Tubuai. After an unsuccessful three month effort to settle on the island, they returned to Tahiti, put 16 of the crew ashore, some loyal to Bligh, some mutineers. Fletcher Christian and eight Bounty crew, accompanied by six Tahitian men and twelve women, one with a baby, sailed away in the Bounty hoping to hide forever from the long arm of the British law. 

Bligh navigated the launch 3600 nautical miles with no charts to safety in 41 days using only a sextant and a pocket watch. Only one man died on the voyage - stoned to death by angry natives on the first island they tried to land on. The launch voyage was a feat of navigation unparalleled to this day.  He was tried in admiralty court and found innocent of the charges against him. Bligh continued his career in the Royal Navy, over came the bad publicity of the mutiny and trial, and with the passing of time was promoted to Rear Admiral.

The mutineers eventually settled on Pitcairn Island, an isolated rock in the Pacific that was misplaced on British charts. They burned the ship in what is now called Bounty Bay and weren't discovered for 18 years. 

After all but two of the fifteen men that settled on Pitcairn had been killed in bloody murders, Midshipman Edward Young and Able Bodied Seaman John Adams began building a society based on the ship's bible. Edward Young died in 1800, leaving John Adams the sole survivor. Today their descendants still live there in a moralistic community, clinging to their tiny rock, struggling to survive in today's technological world. 
 

HISTORY OF PRISONER OF WAR MODELS: The art of French-Prisoner-of-War is best remembered for their model of sailing ships of war. But they also did other carvings to while a way the time. Models and items like this were made from dried and bleached mutton bones from their meals, and ‘Dieppe Ivory’. The guards, had a ready market for the finished models.

HM Prison, Dartmoor was built at the time of the Napoleonic Wars, to house prisoners of war, it later became a convict prison - perhaps the most notorious the world. Disease was rampant often causing an early termination to the time served by the French sailors. The worst period of deaths was between November 1809 and April 1810 when 500 men died. The French section of Dartmoor Prison Cemetery held just under 2000 men. The men buried in shallow graves. After burial the wind and rain soon eroded the sodden peat and the animals grazing on the land, especially pigs began to expose the bones of the men buried there. The sun bleached their bones. These bones – called ‘Dieppe Ivory’ – were often used in the construction of ship models and other articles.
