Description: Carved wood with polychrome paintPresumably North Italy, 17th centuryChrist in slight ponderation inclined to the right side, dressed in an ankle-length dress and a cloth coatDepicted while speaking, indicated by the slightly open mouthDimensions: 170 x 60 cmRestored conditionHigh-quality sculpture of Christ the Savior, which can be found rarely in this sizeThis impressive North Italian figure of Christ the Savior shows the typical high-quality carving of the early Baroque. Christ’s stands in a slight ponderation, his body inclined to the right. He is depicted while speaking, as indicated by the slightly open mouth. He wears an ankle-length dress and a cloth coat, which is thrown over the left shoulder and the left arm, leading from the back to the front over the left hip, continuing along the stomach to the left hip, where it is held together by the left elbow. In its original condition, Christ probably blessed with the right hand and held the cross flag as a symbol of victory over death in his left hand.The wooden figure shows remnants of the old and new colorings. The right arm and the left hand, as well as the right foot and the left toe are missing. Further losses of the substance are due to damages caused by woodworms. The entire surface shows traces of an inactive woodworm infestation. A professional restoration was carried out in 2010. The underside of the figure has been bolted for stabilization. The dimensions of the figure are 170 x 60 cm. Shipping costs excl. statutory VAT and plus 2,5% (+VAT) shipping insurance.

THE BUILDER'S ¼IN.: 1FT. SCALE HALF-BLOCK MODEL FOR THE LEGENDARY TEA CLIPP

by Charles Miller Ltd

May 12, 2015, 11:00 AM GMT

London, United Kingdom

Estimated Price: £6,000 - £8,000

Description: THE BUILDER'S ¼IN.: 1FT. SCALE HALF-BLOCK MODEL FOR THE LEGENDARY TEA CLIPPER THERMOPYLÆ, BUILT FOR G. THOMPSON & CO BY WALTER HOOD, ABERDEEN, 1868 carved from 5/8in. laminated yellow pine with black-painted topsides, rudder, carved warrior-form figurehead and cut-away masts, mounted on wooden display board with nameplate inscribed CHINA CLIPPER "THERMOPYLÆ" / ABERDEEN LINE, and brass builder's plate engraved THERMOPYLÆ / 212 x 36 x 21. / 947 TONS. / WALTER HOOD & Co. / ABERDEEN / 1868 -- 10½ x 50½in. (26.5 x 128cm.) Provenance: Walter Hood & Co., Builders, and thence by descent. A contemporary full-hull proposal model for Thermopylæ forms part of the collection at the Aberdeen Art Gallery and Museums Collections, Accession Number: ABDMS003130. Thermopylæ was built in Walter Hood's yards in Aberdeen in 1868, to the order of George Thompson & Co of London. Designed by Bernard Waymouth, she was 212 feet long and registered at 947 tons (net). A splendid sea boat, she was fast in any weather and especially quick at going to windward. Launched on 19th August 1868, she sailed from Gravesend on her maiden voyage to Melbourne on 7th November the same year. Anchoring in Port Phillip after a record run of 60 days (pilot to pilot), she went straight on to Newcastle, NSW, to load cargo for Shanghai. Crossing the Pacific in another record passage of 28 days, she then proceeded to Foochow to load tea. In the race home, she narrowly missed setting the record time for the year, and this first voyage set the standard for her entire career. Continuing to make extremely fast passages throughout the 1870s, she loaded her final tea cargo at Foochow in 1881, before being transferred to the Australian wool route. During the 1880s, she frequently raced her old tea-trade rival Cutty Sark from Sydney to London, via Cape Horn. Her best passage was 76 days in 1882, although Cutty Sark, who revelled in the stronger winds of the southern hemisphere, was generally quicker. In 1890 Thermopylæ was sold to Canadian owners for £5,000 and from 1892 to 1895 she was used in the trans-Pacific trade. In 1896 she was resold to the Portuguese Government, renamed Pedro Nunes and put to work as a cadet training ship. Her condition deteriorated gradually and by 1907 her working life was over. On 13th October that year, she was towed out of the Tagus into the open sea and sunk by gunfire; it was a sad end for such a thoroughbred as she. Considered by many to have been the fastest clipper of them all, there were even those who believed her to be the fastest sailing vessel ever launched. Whatever the truth of the claims, she was - and has remained - one of the legends of the age of sail. ++Model is in original and unrestored condition, lacking bowsprit; display board has some shrinkage to the extreme left and right vertical sections and some white paint along some edges (where a wall was painted around the model); the figurehead is slightly loose as missing bowsprit no longer keeps it in situ, but firmly attached still; minor wear to paint commensurate with age, but no serious scratches, knocks etc in evidence.
