Mid Century Vintage Schooner, Handmade c.a. 1950's


Handmade, vintage model schooner from a collector in Bristol, R.I. Rare, collector piece.

This very unique and attractive antique model yacht is painted in a hunter green with white paint accents and light mahogany-stained deck. The brass and copper accessories are throughout the boat, which adds to its value and character. Measures 31"L x 33"H x 6"W. A very popular size. A unique brass and copper helms wheel.

We added new rigging and cleaned the original sails. (some Petina remains which adds to it's originality). We also restored the original stand and added a felt bottom.

As with all of our model yachts and pond boats, we partially disassemble for safe shipping. Just attach the main sail and adjust some rigging using the adjustment slides ( bowsers) and you're all set to enjoy! We will also include simple instructions and also e mail you some pictures to assist in minor assembly.

This model has a very original, antique, high-quality appearance and will make a great conversation piece in any home.
