Votive ship models, as they were called, were
suspended from the rafters of many a sailor's
church. Some feel that this is the best way to
display a model. As a compromise,
two 'universal' brackets were designed in bronze and wood.
When attached to a wall with accompanying
hardware (for wood and plaster walls), the
brackets hold up the model and nothing interferes
with the beautiful curves and lines of your ship's
hull and sails.
This model is shipped with the sails unassembled.
Step-by-step instructions are included. All
rigging, lines and stays have brass hooks attached,
which easily hook into eyelets on mast, boom, sprit or
deck. Assembly takes less than 15 minutes.
