This is a very lovely vintage wooden model boat, with a full set of cloth sails.
Constructed by hand, presumably from a kit, there is a small plaque attached to the base which reads 'HMS Bounty' and, peculiarly, a French flag attached to the rigging.
The model is in very good, vintage condition except for one string in the rigging which is loose. Length and Height: 24cm.
Found at a nearby vide grenier, this boat is one of a large collection hand made by a local French gentleman who gave one to his grandson every year before he passed.
What buyers at La Corbeille thought of other boats from this collection:
