AN OFFERING OF HISTORIC IMPORTANCE

 

Presented is an interesting collection of miniature whale craft tools that were made by George Blanchard for his nephew back in the mid 1850's on board the English whale ship Diana. The white sections of the hand crafted tools are whalebone and the black sections are wood. The green felt mounting and 20" L x 12" H wood framing were added by the family years later. 

Included in the 13 piece collection are: 2 flags, 2 oars, 1 harpoon, 3 cutting spades, 1 gaff, 1 skimmer, 1 hatchet, 1 harpoon gun and a block and tackle. 
The hand written paper label in block print reads: 
 
"EBONY AND BONE MINIATURE WHALING TOOLS FASHIONED BY GEORGE BLANCHARD ON BOARD THE HULL WHALER DIANA AS TOYS FOR HIS NEPHEW".

INCLUDED IN THE SALE is the book "From the Deep of the Sea" by Charles Edward Smith, the Ship's Surgeon which details the ship's last fateful voyage and is referenced below

           Block & Tackle and Hatchet

          Harpoon

PROVENANCE: The collection was purchased at auction in Plymouth, England by an English dealer on 21 DEC 2005, who in turn sold them to us. The auctioneer reported they were part of an Estate Sale of the property of the descendents of the maker, George Blanchard, who is a known crew member of the English whale ship Diana hailing from what was a major whaling port in Hull, England between 1841 and 1869. 

The Diana was a steam vessel of 355 Gross Registered Tons built in Bremen, Germany, 1840. Under the command of Captain John Gravill, Jr., she was beset by ice in the winter of 1866-67. Gravill, an old man, did not survive the hardships of the voyage. He is buried in Hull's Spring Bank Cemetery. Hull had been the major whaling port of the UK for many years, but whaling was in decline in those latter days. 

From a descendant,  a crew member,  who served with George Blanchard on that fateful voyage. 

"George Blanchard was one of 27 Hull men on the Diana when she sailed from Hull in the spring of 1866. My great, great grandfather and his brother were also on board. There is a pretty full account of the voyage in From the Deep of the Sea which is taken from the surgeon's journal.

I have done quite a bit of research on the voyage and inherited and collected quite a few relics relating to the Diana." 

Regards

Gordon C.....
