I don't know a blessed thing about the ship shown on this slab of slate, and it's not for lack of trying to find out. Dang!
It's in really, really nice condition with no remarkable chips or cracks or other goof-ups. Size: 24" by 16" by 5/8" - and it's heavy. 18 lbs.
Centered at the bottom is the name of the ship: "Isiah L. Jefferson." Right above that, it says "Grand Banks Fisherman."
I don't know how the drawings are etched or engraved into the slate, but the detail is SUPER! I've seen one other of these over the last fifty years or so, but I still don't know diddly-squat about them.
at 341, I have two "Prime Directive:"
All sorts of detail drawings are around the sides.
If you staked me out on a fire ant nest and forced me to guess, I'd say it's somew around fifty years old, but that would only be a guess. (Just let me off that anthill!)
Nothing wrong with the back either. It would make a great table - but framed and hanging on the wall, it would be a killer. I guarantee you'll be thrilled.
