Antique Solid Silver Galleon Sailing Ship Model From Poland Circa 1859:
Antique Solid Silver Model of an 18th Century Galleon or Sailing Ship from Poland circa 1859
This Antique Model Galleon measures approximately 3 1/2 inches or 88 mm across its length from its bow to its stern by 1 inch or 26 mm across the widest part of its central sail from side to side and it is 3 1/4 inches or 82 mm tall from the keel or underside of its hull to the top of its central mast, the base is 2 1/8 inches or 54 mm across its width or diameter from one side to the other and the model galleon stands just over 4 3/8 inches or 112 mm tall to the top of its central mast.
The model is completely made from solid silver in the form of an 18th century galleon or sailing ship that is mounted on the top of a solid silver stepped circular base or stand that has been embossed or raised relief and engrave decorated, the galleon has three masts with silver sails and silver rigging and the body or hull has been raised relief decorated to give the model its definition, the stand has been engraved with a previous owners initials or family monogram and the rudder or lower hull of the galleon has been impressed with a Polish number 13 that is the 812 standard solid silver mark and this mark is alongside an Austrian imported item solid silver mark all as photographed below, the Austrian silver import mark was used from 1901 until 1921 when this style of mark was changed and the Polish number 13 solid silver mark is recorded as being used in 1859 so the model galleon was made in Poland in 1859 and then later imported into Austria.
Thecondition is used and Excellent for its age.
The model ship has No Large Dents, No Splits, No Cracks.No Holes and No Repairs that I can find, the model ship stands upright, the definition and decoration is crisp, the Polish and Austrian silver marks are still legible although as this is a used antique model ship there is some damage to the lower corner of the central lower sail and I think that there is a sail missing from the upper front mast, the silver sails have some small shallow dents in them and the model has some minor surface marks and wear from use, it has the patinaof age thatis to be expected and a good clean would enhance it greatly. Personally I think that this antique model of a galleon or sailing ship wouldmake a superb addition to any desk top or cabinet collection and that it looks fantastic considering that its over 150 years old.
This Delightful Antique Polish Solid Silver Model of an 18th Century Galleon or Sailing Ship circa 1859is one of several piecesof antique and collectable silver that I have also listed.
