French Ship in a Box Diorama. Handmade Folk Art Model Boat Scratch Built.

Stock Number: NSSD1749


This handsome original French ship in a box diorama which has been lovingly handmade in wood is of beautiful quality with wonderful detail, dates from the beginning of the 20th century and is encased in a glass fronted wooden box.

This piece came from Nantes in France so most likely features a sailing ship from that area. The ship has wonderful detail including carved wooden and painted sails, rigging and a dramatic painted sky.

This unusual piece is a fascinating piece of folk art that looks very nice displayed on a shelf and makes a great talking piece.
