Product Description

A cool scratch built depiction of the Titanic…

Although we are unsure of the actual age of this piece, we think it could date to the mid to latter part of the 20th century. Looking at the naive nature of the build, we don’t believe this was a mass market piece. Maybe it was something put together in ones shed, or maybe it was an art project etc. Either way, it’s a charming piece and actually does get across the scale of the titanic and its likeness. It’a also HUGE, stretching over 1 metre in width

It’s made from a light and soft wood, then hand painted. The detailing is amazing, and there’s many different pieces that have been worked together to capture the elegance of the boat. We think the current condition is a piece of art and wouldn’t look out of place on display on a shelf in ones home…

We are offering this piece in ‘as found’ condition, therefore there is natural wear and tear. Structurally the entire piece is good, yet there are some surface scars and abrasions, some paint chipping and some tatty areas. We haven’t checked the piece for completion, therefore this is sold as seen in the pictures, as we are unsure if there are broken or missing pieces. That said, we feel the current condition simply adds to its charm and authenticity. Please do study the photos to help with your analysis as it would be hard to highlight all imperfections…
