What a wonderful, whimsical folk art battleship. It is made of pine and painted tan on the hull and black on the superstructure. The portly "port-holed" hull supports two large cannons, a smokestack, railing and crows nest or pigeon coop. The ship measures 10" x 5 3/4" x 8 1/4".
The shape and style is reminiscent of the early 1900"s naval architecture. The condition is very good with only minor losses to the railing and some small losses to the paint. This is just a sweet little piece.
