BUILDER'S HALF MODEL OF NAMED AMERICAN SCHOONER 1872

 

This Rare Half Model Has Been Sold
Thank you!
BUILDER'S HALF HULL MODEL SCHOONER SOUTH SHORE


     
Backboard: 61" L x 9" H x 1" T  Half Hull: 50" L x 5 1/2" D x 6" Depth   Bowsprit add 6"
Weight:  24 lbs
 
Presented is an authentic large builder's model of a New England schooner that was launched in Newburyport, Massachusetts on September, 1873. The model is held together by two large rectangular wedges that run from the deck to the keel. One is forward and one aft which shows this model was intended to be taken apart and the lifts used to loft the lines of the real ship. True builders models like this are very scarce and more important than those made strictly for advertising or presentation.
 
The half model's hull is made of 8 lifts (one plank each) of knot free wood. The model topsides are painted black with a narrow white whale stripe over a copper color bottom. The cut-water, keel, rudder post and rudder are represented by paint. There are four drilled holes across the top by which it was originally hung. There are also two contemporary metal fittings added on the back.
 
After the lofting process, the model was reassembled and put on a unique backboard where the top was curved to follow the sheer-line of the deck, something we have not seen before. The hull was painted in the ships colors. In this condition the model was either presented to the owner or it was used at the Newbury Shipyard as a record of their work.
 
The design is for load carrying and speed. There is a clipper style cut-water and finely formed hollow bow for speed, round bilges, rectangular center section, and  underbody to maximize carrying capacity. The 50 inch hull on deck is mounted on a backboard 61" long, which is varnished. The name SOUTH SHORE is painted in white on the stern quarter. 


       Showing close-up views of bow, midships and aft quarter sections
 
AN ESSAY ON UNDERSTANDING THE FINE POINTS OF THE VARIOUS TYPES OF HALF HULL MODELS READ:   http://landandseacollection.com/id267.html

CONDITION: All the wood is In overall excellent condition. The model must have been displayed for years on a wall with the bow facing the sun where the paint has weathered and there is considerable loss and crazing from the bow to 8 inches aft. The remainder of the black topside paint shows much less extensive paint loss. The entire topsides is crackled. The bottom paint is in good condition from bow to stern. The backboard has a vertical end-cap at each end and all its varnish is cackled.

HISTORY OF SHIP: Schooner South Shore was 130 feet overall with a beam of 32 feet and a draft of 12 feet. She registered 363 tons. Her hailing port was Dennis, Massachusetts. Kelley is listed as her then owner and first captain. See http://library.mysticseaport.org/initiative/SPSearch.cfm?ID=789530 She was listed in Lloyd's Register of American and Foreign Shipping continuously from 1873 through 1893. At that time her owner was Charles A. Cousens, her captain, L.F. Jones and her hailing port was Boston. See http://library.mysticseaport.org/initiative/SPSearch.cfm?ID=530282   After 1893, she is no longer listed in Lloyd's, and her disposition is unknown.

PROVENANCE: Bought in New England at auction.

               Showing the finely hollowed bow and stern for speed and the rounded bilges
  Deck view showing the forward wedge. It reaches to the keel
