The handmade technique or qualities of this large mid century wood and string ship model are so interesting. A mid century take on classic nautical ship modeling! Standing at 36" high and 26" wide, it is large and somewhat of a sculpture in and of itself. Display this piece of art on your credenza or console, perhaps in front of a light colored wall to show off the texture of the string sails.
Wood hull and masts, metal winch or cleats, string sails. The criss cross pattern of the strings make it almost graphic and the variating colors of black, beige and red give it a modern feel.
The wood hull has some minor surface wear. The strings have some areas where they have become loose or disconnected from the base. Some fraying. With a bit of tlc, the new owner may be able to reconnect some strings. We have left it in as found condition and find it pretty cool against a white wall which shows off all the 3 dimensional qualities.
