POW 68-Gun Sailing War Ship of the Line
Napoleonic Prisoner-of-War Bone Ship Model

18 Inches Long x 18 Inches High x 6 Inches Wide  Circa 1800 

A warship that formed the backbone of the British Royal Navy through the Napoleonic Campaigns and beyond, this 68-Gun Man-O'-War is a fine representation of an artform that has fascinated ship model collectors since its inception. Imprisoned soldiers and sailors, held primarily in British ships that had been turned into hulking prisons on the water, became studios for industrious captives, often of French or Dutch allegiance.

Sharp lines, good proportions, and an attention to detail are all notable features of this carved bone Napoleonic Ship Model. Dressed with carved railings and outfitted with the appropriate fittings, the model is set on a marquetry boxwood base with a carved bone scrolling edge plate. A very nice combination of historic value and artistry in this ship model.
