Three mid to late 20th century pieces carved of wood with rattan and fiber components. The largest of the three measures approximately 25" in length, 11" wide and 6" high while the smallest measures approximately 11" in length, 6" wide and 3" high. The vessels of these hand crafted pieces are in very good good condition, however; the mast and sail portion of the largest piece do not stand on their own (a component to facilitate this is broken or missing) while the sail on the smallest piece is still furled, bound by twine, and therefore untested. The mid size ship's mast and sail function as they should. From the collection of a world traveler of 45+ years who has circumnavigated the globe via sailboat. May require multiple boxes to ship. Please inquire regarding shipping rates prior to bidding. Keywords: sailing, maritime, Pacific Ocean, Pacific islands, South Pacific
