Vintage primitive large matchstick ship. Prison art sculpture.

Lovely old model of a boat/ship, mounted on two plinths for display. Made from matchsticks and varnished for protection. 

There are two masts, one of which has a snap (see photos), but this will be glued before dispatch. This mast has a tiny screw thread inserted into it’s top. On the deck of the ship is a removable hatch, with a tiny switch and wires. I think this may have been connected to the mast, and a bulb inserted in to the screw end bit. 

Also on deck is a winch for the anchor (not functional), a cabin with windows and a funnel (possibly being the exhaust?).

Dimensions:
Length: 550mm (21.5”)
Width: 135mm (5.3”)
Height: 320mm (12.5”)
Weight: 516g

The size of the parcel makes this quite expensive to post overseas, I’m sorry about that.
