More About this Item


Description: Scrimshawed brush, 5 by 2 inches, reads Star 1865. The clipper ship was built as COMET by William Webb and sold foreign in 1863 being renamed FIERY STAR. Sunk in 1865 on voyage Moreton Bay for London after cargo of wool caught fire. 87 people got to the lifeboats as they could hold no more. Left aboard were 18 seamen. Ironically, just as FIERY STAR was about to sink, the vessel DAUNTLESS arrived and was able to rescue the remaining crew. However none of those that took to the lifeboats were ever seen again.
