Older Chinese Junk Clipper Wood Model Boat Assembled Hand made 27 Large. This is truly an impressive model.The photos do not do it justice. It measures 27 long from tip to tip. The top of the main cabin is 10 1/2 high from the bottom. 30" high to top of the mast and 9" wide.
There are no markings on it, from who made it, the age, or where it was made. Was part of the Gordon Wildermuth estate. He was a partner in the world famous architecture firm Skidmore, Owings & Merrill. It was displayed for years at his residence in the John Hancock Building unit# 8904.
The level of craftsmanship is excellent. There is some metal for details. The sails are cloth and the rigging is thread.As seen in the photos, the rigging needs to be re-done or re-hung. The rudder, back cabin, mast/sails, and base can be removed. All items are all stored in a smoke and pet free home.
