Model of the famous Cutty Sark Sailing Clipper with solid wooden hull with canvas sails and detailed rigging - 21" (55cms) long.
The worlds last intact clipper ship, now preserved in a spectacular dry dock at Greenwich, London. Long, lean, and beautiful, she was built in 1869 for the tea trade but made redundant by the completion of the Suez Canal which made steam ships more economical. Instead she earned her living and developed an incredible reputation for speed in the long distance wooltrade from Australia.
