Extraordinary 18th Century American Made Ship's Half Hull Model, ca. 1760-1800. This piece is from the Phillip Schwartz collection (ex. Vice President of Colt Firearms Mfg. Co.), and is a true one of a kind piece of maritime folk art. The piece has been authenticated by several nautical historians, including the ex. curator of the Mystic Seaport Museum. The ship itself measures approx. 27 1/2" long and 7" tall. It is meticulously detailed, including the deck, and retains much of it's original paint. It is mounted on a hand planed board, that measures just under 35" long, and approx. 11 3/4" tall. The ship is mounted by way of several hand forged Rosehead nails. The bow of the ship is marked "JOHN CO????". Possibly the maker's name, or the ship's name. Further research about the name could yield some very important information . This is the best half hull we have ever had the pleasure to offer, and is a unique and important maritime piece right out of one of the best antiques collections in Connecticut.
