Large 19th Century Painted Wood Model of the Sailing Ship "Margaret" Sculpture

About

A very large and rare 19th century painted wood model of the sailing ship "Margaret". Votive ship. Height 54" width: 61" and depth: 15". The scale is perfect as it had to be and the quality of work is evident. Further inspection reveals that no detail was too small, as evidenced by the carved small boats, the ropes, poles and fittings. 5 feet long. This stunningly beautiful and intricately carved ship model was created by the sailors when they were at sea for many years at a time and they created this amazing model using handmade tools using scraps of whatever was available for carving and bringing this piece of art to life. A votive ship, sometimes called a church ship, is a ship model displayed in a church. As a rule, votive ships are constructed and given as gifts to the church by seamen and ship builders. They are relatively common in churches in the Scandinavian countries Denmark, Sweden, Norway and Finland, in Germany, the United Kingdom, France and Spain. Common in France, in coastal towns either as model ships (generally made by sailors after escaping a shipwreck) or as paintings, they are known under the Latin term of Ex-Voto. Very decorative in a library, entryway, living room, dining room, a chapel. Truly a statement piece, a work of art, a beautiful sculpture. Located in Los Angeles, Beverly Hills, West Hollywood antique dealer.
