At last...your ship has come in...and it's made of Bakelite! It doesn't get better for a Bakelite collector and/or ship fan.
This ship is a multi-mast schooner with each mast carved and curved out of genuine (tested) amber color Bakelite. The base of the figurine and the hull of the ship is also solid Bakelite. The poles that hold the masts are white plastic or possibly bone (NOT ivory).
The ship measures 3 1/4 inches across the masts by 4 1/2 inches high. There are a couple of flaws, most notably a chip at base edge. A thin wire holding one side of a mast is gone but doesn't effect the mast which still has a wire on the other side to hold it in place.
This piece is circa 1930s...could be a hand made piece by a ship model maker. It's in excellent vintage condition...has survived amazingly well in spite of its fragile components (the masts).
