A fine quality contemporary scratch-built clipper ship model, in 1:96 scale, of the Clipper Ship COMET. She was built by William Webb of New York, launched in July 1851, to serve in the height of the California Gold Rush Trade, primarily for the passenger and cargo. On a return voyage to New York, she set a 76 day sailing record that still stands for a sailing ship.
