This is nicely detailed wooden half hull model of a Chesapeake Bay Skipjack Sailboat used for harvesting oysters in the late 1800s. The schooner bow made it a very handsome sailing vessel. This model is not very old and may have been made by the Authentic Model Company. I have added a new mounting plaque.
