Beautiful, well built wooden ship model with lots of copper brass parts.
Cutty Sark (schip, 1869)
The Cutty Sark is a tea clipper that was built in 1869 in Dumbarton, Scotland
The ship acquired great fame due to the races against its big competitor, the Thermopylae, and other tea clippers
Just like other ships from this time, the Cutty Sark is made from a wrought iron frame with wooden planks.
The ship had its maiden voyage in 69 days. His competitor, the Thermopylae did this only once.
In 1873 transporting tea on a sailing ship was ended. The steam ships had partly caught up with the clippers, after the completion of the Suez canal.
The Cutty Sark is now in a dry dock at the National Maritime Museum in Greenwich (London) Its accessible for the public
The dimensions of the ship model are, approx:
Total length 105 cm
Total height: 75 cm.
Width 18 cm.
Condition: good especially considering the age of about 50 years
Please note: Because of the vulnerability this ship model should be picked up in Babyloniënbroek (near Gorinchem, the Netherlands) Unfortunately shipment is NOT possible
SORRY, NO SHIPPING only pick-up available.

I do not understand the second part of your mail because my knowledge of Italian is unfortunately too small
I have already shipped many model boats abroad (Italy, Spain, France, USA, Canada etc.) and all model boats have always arrived well.
The sales condition of your model boat on Catawiki was:
N.B. Due to the large vulnerability and the size of this ship model pickup in Babyloniënbroek (near Gorinchem) is preferable. When shipping, the seller is NOT liable for damage to the ship model during transport.
Because it is very unfortunate that your model boat has arrived damaged I want to pay you immediately € 150, - to repair the damage when you send me your bank account.
