Made in the middle of the 19th Century, this Dutch shipyard model concentrates on the hull profile and, as it was the convention, shows only a few deck details. The object was to show to scale the lines of the ship from stem to stern. The model is mounted onto a backboard with an inscription as seen in the photographs of a Dutch schooner called Vice Admiraal Maij giving its tonnage and launch date of 1865.
A rare and original "work of art".
