About the Item

Early 20th century Folk Art Boat Model Collection Every now and again something truly amazing comes along, this is true in this amazing collection of 3 museum quality folk-art hand-crafted Boat models. Dated to the first quarter of the 20th Century this unique set is scratch built, from a variety of materials including canvas hulls, pine frames, bamboo supports, brass and copper details, and cotton threads. Each model has its own set of pine oars with copper detail, these examples are the best we have ever seen and believe they will make an amazing display in the right space.
