ENGLISH THREE ISLAND "TRAMP" STEAMER CORDENE
Sailormade Model
1924
 
Presented is a model of CORDENE which was representative of a type of cargo ship, known as a Three Island "Tramp" steamer. They were built in vast numbers at the beginning of the 1900's, and typically went from port-to-port randomly looking for cargo to deliver. In their earliest form, they had an open bridge on an exposed platform. This was later modified to the raised enclosed type, which you see here that came in to service during the 1920's. CORDENE was built in 1924 by Swan Hunter on the River Tyne, the same yard that launched the liner Mauritania on September 20, 1906. CORDENE and many others were lost in both World Wars since they made up the bulk of the convoys.  In the service of William Cory & Sons, London,she was sunk on 1 August 1941 as part of CSPECIFICATIONS:
 
Built by Swan Hunter, Newcastle, England, 1924
LOA 287 feet, BEAM 39.6 feet, 2456 Gross Registered Tons

                   Fore deck and windlass 
            Hatches and donkey engines
        Main deckhouse and lifeboats
      Quarter deck and steering quadrant
CONSTRUCTION: The model is constructed of various materials which include wood for the masts, deck, deck houses, hatches, ladders, and machinery. And, wire for the rigging, and metal for the railings. Some plastic is used such as the propeller. The wood planks of the hatches are hand inked in India ink. Her hull and bottom is painted in flat black. The model is typical of the work of its maker who was most likely a member of the crew since all the details show great knowledge of the ship and its rigging.
 
HISTORY OF WILLIAM CORY & SONS, LONDON: The Cory firm was an affiliation of eight London companies that were doing business as coal merchants, lightermen, and owners and leasors of colliers and freighters. They were one of the first to bring coal to London by steamer. Cory had started business in 1872 and over the many years grew into a much larger business. They became tug operators, taking over several other companies and eventually consolidating under the control of Cory Towage Ltd. Around 1985, the flag emblem was altered from a white diamond to a blue one edged white. After over 128 years, they were absorbed on 20 February 2000 by Bureau Wijsmuller B.V.

CONDITION: Everything is in original condition and complete except for the omission of flags which can be added. The flat black paint shows some scuff marks of a minor nature.
