Chinese Junk New Model L60 by Old Modern Handicrafts


This is the Chinese Junk New Model L60 by Old Modern Handicrafts. 

27 x 7 x 22.5 inches

One of the most powerful ships of the ancient world, the Chinese junk ship is iconic for its bamboo-slatted sails and sophisticated design. This handmade model ship in natural finish is a historically accurate replica of the infamous ship used for commerce, military combat, piracy, and pleasure boating. Crafted through the traditional plank-on-frame method of construction, this 27-inch model is made from quality exotic woods like mahogany and teak. Each model takes more than 50 hours of work by master craftsmen to construct strip by strip. Sporting a natural finish and slim, curved proportions, this model is a refined incarnation of the classical Chinese sailing vessel. Fine details include main and mizzen masts, battened sails made from hand-stitched fabric, brass cannons and anchors, miniature lifeboats, canopy, open hatch, and multi-level wooden deck. Model comes with a sturdy wooden stand and metal nameplate.
