A very rare builder's dockyard model of a steam tender from the 19th century luxury steam yacht Wintonia. The model is made in mahogany with plank on frame construction. Built to scale and in excellent condition, all original, with brass hardware and steam engine the model is housed in its original glass and mahogany case.
The luxury steam yacht WINTONIA was built by Day, Summers and Co. In Southampton, England in 1894 for her owner F.H. Putnam. She weighed 233 tons and measured 137' LOA x 19.2'B x 11.2'D.
Among the photographs of the model you can also see a detail of a painting of the Wintonia by Antonio DiSimone and an original photograph that were formerly in our gallery collection. These are not included in the piece but are shown for reference.
