This odd vintage boat figurine is made of solid sterling silver filigree wire with interesting details. It may be a Chinese style boat as they did a lot of this type of filigree work but it might have originated in Europe. It's not marked but tests for sterling.
The boat is on gracefully curved legs, has two seats...one with the steering wheel. A dangling hook hangs over the captain's seat...not sure what it's for. Two flags fly high over the ship...one filigree and one solid.
The boat measures 3 3/4 inches across by 5 3/4 inches high. It weighs 50.5 grams. It has a nice age-tarnished patina with lighter areas for contrast. We leave any polishing to buyer as some people like it left as found. It's in excellent condition...very detailed, refined work. All aboard who likes nautical silver.
