FINE AMERICAN
 CLIPPER SHIP MODEL

 
  Carefully Handmade and Authentic to Original

Presented is a carefully handcrafted full rigged model of a classic American three masted Clipper Ship, QUEEN OF CLIPPERS, that was  made by a professional model maker. The hull is carved from a solid block of wood with exceptional attention to detail, and is mounted on an antique hand carved base and enclosed in a glazed case with brass corners. The model maker carefully followed the ship's design and laid out her lines, rigging and fittings so perfectly as to compare with what is known of the real vessel. 

NOTE: Because of the size and weight of the glass case, the photographs were taken through the glass and do not do justice to the quality of the workmanship and attention to detail which is exceptional.

As depicted in the Nathaniel Ives engraving below:

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 aft of the forecastle. Next aft, a long raised deckhouse with three lifeboats secured to its roof. Then a cargo hatch on either side of the main mast with a companion way behind with a large raised poop deck following. There are the ladders to the poop deck where the mizzen mast stands, and a small companionway which serves for easy access to the helm (steering station) which is at the very stern.
 
                                                           Midships section

THE SHIP'S SPECIFICATIONS: The real ship was 235 feet long on the keel. 10 feet longer on deck, and 258 feet over all, from the knights-heads to the taffrail. Her extreme breadth of beam is 44 feet, depth 24 feet, including 8 feet height of between-decks; rounding of sides 4 inches, sheer 4 feet, and will register about 2300 tons, Custom House measurement.
   Foredeck, anchors capstan. Detail of chain plates with foreward deckhouse behind

From a newspaper article in the Boston Daily Atlas, April 2, 1853: She was built at East Boston by Mr. Robert E. Jackson, the builder of the John Bertram, Winged Racer, and many other fine ships; but this was said to be the crowning triumph of his professional life. Her enterprising owners, Messrs. Seccomb & Taylor, have spared no expense to make her a perfect ship, and to ensure her success. She is expected to sail twenty knots with a leading wind, and to rank first among the foremost upon the world of waters.They will find her to be better and more beautiful than we have been able to describe her, and every way worthy of her name, the Queen of Clippers! Capt. She was launched in April, 1853 and  Reuben Snow, a sailor of great experience, and established reputation, was her first captain.

Under the ownership of Zerega & Co., New York, she set a record passage between that City and California of 118 days. She was chartered to France during the Crimean War and after the hostilities, she was sold to France in 1856. After that, no further record of her is found.

 
 Poop deck and signal flags
You will not find a nicer model of an early American Clipper Ship model, of the Golden Age of Sail making this an important addition to any serious nautical collection.
 
                                 From stem to stern looking down on the deck
 
CONDITION: The model and its original case is exceptional in all respects. The rigging is taught, all the gear and fittings are in place and nothing is broken or missing. 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 and massive case is quite remarkable and impressive.
