Presented is a lovely and nicely finished half hull model of a steam/sailing ship showing 7 lifts out of different woods, clearly delineating the lifts. A “lift” is one plank. It has a cruiser bow with a hollowed forefoot and fantail stern. The backboard is Mahogany ,and both that and the hull are finely varnished. The deck shows worn green velvet, which indicates that this fine piece is probably over 50 years old. The ship design dates back to the turn of the 20th century.

This half hull model is a great size as an addition to any nautical or maritime collection or decor.

This half hull was never intended to come apart and be used to loft the lines of a ship, but was possibly used by the builder either as a record of their work or given as a gift to the owner. If the vessel was used in commercial service as this one likely was, it may have been used for promotion. The name of the ship it represents is unfortunately unknown, but the shape of the hull is clearly around the turn of the 20th Century, say Ca 1890.
