Antique Paddlewheel Boat Model, Marine Folk Art
Anonymous, circa 1910-1925
Original painted surface, mermaid figurehead, carved wheel covers


Antique Paddlewheel Boat Model, Marine Folk Art
Anonymous, circa 1910-1925
Original painted surface, mermaid figurehead, carved wheel covers, entire view 1

This really needs to be seen to appreciate the detail including glass windows (no losses
and some with a purple hue), two paddle wheels (one has a wooden piece missing that
we can have restored). At one time the boat was powered by a steam engine that was
accessed by the removeable top. Just a few other features are the wheelhouse,
lifeboats, benches, and interior stairways in the interior; the folky, oversized carved
mermaid figurehead. The carved paddlewheel covers feature a hunter and his dog (and
paddle) in a canoe. Minor imperfections displays beautifully.
(Length: 87"; width: 21"; height: 46")

Antique, German UB122 Submarine Model, Harwich 1918
Memorializing the Surrender of German Submarines at Harwich Harbor
Likely Sailor Made [trench art], Aluminum, Brass & Copper, entire view

Competently crafted interpretation including the display stand crafted of a 19th century
British candlestick base, a clever threaded cap with tapered pivot pin that the sub sits on.
On 18 November, instruction as to how the surrender of U-Boats would take place
was issued. The German submarines were to gather off the coast of Harwich. The
flotillas were to be accompanied by transports, so that the crews could be ferried back
to Germany after their war craft had been handed over. The submarines would then be
led to Harwich by a force of British destroyers and cruisers.
Recently a vicious storm exposed UB122.
(Sub is 4.5” long; 1.5” high by 1” in depth; height on stand: approximately 4.75”)
