The Harvey was built in 1847 in Baltimore, Maryland. Designed as a Baltimore Clipper, she was a very fast topsail schooner working out of the port of Galveston Texas. At the turn out the Century she was making several voyages a year between Galveston and the ancient Jewish port of Jaffa which at the time was still under the Ottaman empire. Her main cargo was hemp used to make ropes for the rigging of ships.
The Baltimore Clippers were topsail schooners or brigs with raked masts and sharp deep hulls that allowed them to sail close to the wind. They were orginally used as slavers and light cargo vessels, but their speed made them ideal privaters. In the War of 1812, sailing under Letters of Marque the Chasseur commanded by Captain Thomas Boyle captured 45 British merchant ships. The Chasseur was later nicknamed the "Pride of Baltimore" and a replica of her sails today and can be seen in Baltimore.
The model measures 35" long from bow to stern. It's a fabulous boat model that will be a conversation piece for any room or office.
